We have finalised the review of import conditions for apiaceous vegetable seeds for sowing.

It is recommended that the import of assessed apiaceous vegetable seeds for sowing be permitted provided they meet our biosecurity import conditions.

Four quarantine pests associated with the seeds of six apiaceous vegetable species need risk management measures to reduce the risks to an acceptable level. A range of measures are recommended to reduce the risk of these pests arriving in Australia via the apiaceous vegetable seeds for sowing pathway.

We released the Draft review of import conditions for apiaceous crop seeds for sowing into Australia on 12 September 2017 for public consultation. The consultation period closed on 13 November 2017.

All submissions were considered in finalising the risk analysis.

You can read the final risk analysis report which includes our responses to stakeholder comments about the draft report.

This review was initially funded under the Australian Government’s Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper and is one way we are strengthening biosecurity surveillance and analysis.
