Avocados from Chile

We have finalised the risk analysis for fresh avocado fruit from Chile.

It is recommended that the import of fresh avocado fruit from Chile be permitted provided it meets our biosecurity import conditions.

Seven quarantine pests associated with fresh avocado fruit from Chile are present in Chile, and need risk management measures to reduce the risk to an acceptable level. A range of measures are recommended to reduce the risk of these pests arriving in Australia via the fresh avocado fruit pathway.

We released a draft deport for fresh avocado fruit from Chile on 28 February 2019, for pubic consultation. The consultation period closed on 29 April 2019.

All submissions were considered in finalising the risk analysis.

You can read the final risk analysis report as well as our responses to stakeholder comments on the draft report.
