Biosecurity Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (CRIS)

The Biosecurity CRIS sets out the cost recovery arrangements for the services we provide.

We provide these services for:

  • importers
  • approved arrangements
  • vessels
  • post entry quarantine.

In 2019, the Australian Government decided to expand biosecurity cost recovery arrangements. Stakeholder feedback from the independent review of the biosecurity import levy informed this decision.

The changes will help manage the risk of pest and disease incursions posed by goods and vessels entering Australia.

We are facing increased pressure from:

  • rising costs
  • an expected doubling of cargo volumes by 2030.

We are planning a comprehensive review of biosecurity cost recovery arrangements this year. We will be seeking feedback from industry at this time.
