Description of event organiser:

The Australian Government Department of Agriculture develops and implements policies and programs to ensure Australia's agricultural, fisheries, food and fore​stry indust​ries remain competitive, profitable and sustainable, and supports the sustainable and productive management and use of rivers and water resources. Biosecurity is a critical part of the government's efforts to prevent, respond to and recover from pests and diseases that threaten the economy and env​ironment. The department works to ensure continued market access for our products and to maintain our high standards for emergency response.

The National Biosecurity Committee (NBC) is responsible for managing a national, strategic approach to biosecurity threats relating to plant and animal pests and diseases, marine pests and aquatics, and the impact of these on agricultural production, the environment, community well-being and social amenity.
