A review of the adequacy of the department’s operating model to effectively mitigate biosecurity risks pre-border and at-border in evolving risk and business environments.

This review is being conducted by the Inspector-General of Biosecurity.

The Inspector-General is reviewing the impact of department and industry issues on the effectiveness of preventative biosecurity measures. That is, minimising residual risk to Australia through pre-border and at-border biosecurity activities.

Under the ‘risk-return model’, the department balances its resources to target high-risk imported commodities and biosecurity pathways. Even so, inefficiencies could lead to:

  • increased residual risk
  • unnecessary imposts on businesses, or
  • both.

Your feedback

The Inspector-General asked for input on:

  • significant concerns
  • ideas for improved biosecurity functions
  • ideas for better partnerships between the department and industry participants.

Thank you for your feedback. It will help us improve the biosecurity operating model.
