Proposed Australian biofouling management requirements for internationally arriving vessels

We are developing options for mandatory requirements to manage biofouling on internationally arriving vessels in Australian waters.

When biofouling is not managed, it can introduce invasive species into our ecosystem. A new mandatory management system can reduce this risk.

We want to understand how our proposed biofouling requirements would affect you.

You can now provide feedback on our proposed approach.
