The State Government is now undertaking public consultation on the proposed approach to develop a new Biosecurity Act. Biosecurity. The aim is to develop a modern, simpler, and more effective Biosecurity Act that will build on our strong foundation of protecting what we have, and keeping at bay the pests, diseases and other risks that threaten our industries, environment and public amenities.
This webinar will be an opportunity hear what's being proposed and ask any questions you may have as the Government work towards the development of a new Act. A Public Consultation paper and a Technical Directions Paper, which outline the approach being taken, are also available and are found on the PIRSA website at pir.sa.gov.au/biosecurity act.
We will be recording the webinar and incorporating your feedback and questions as part of the public consultation. The feedback gathered during this consultation will be used to inform the development of a draft Biosecurity Bill. You can also submit any questions you have when you register or you will have opportunity to raise them during the webinar.
