Draft Pest Risk Analysis for Cut Flower and Foliage Imports—Part 1

We finalised the Pest Risk Analysis for Cut Flower and Foliage Imports – Part 1.

The Pest Risk Analysis for Cut Flower and Foliage Imports assesses the biosecurity risks posed by pests associated with cut flower and foliage imports to Australia, and determines whether the introduction of revised import conditions manages the biosecurity risks to achieve the appropriate level of protection for Australia.

Part 1 of the pest risk analysis assessed the three main pest groups being intercepted at the Australian border on imported cut flowers and foliage – thrips, mites and aphids.

We released a draft report for Part 1of the pest risk analysis on 14 November 2018, for public consultation.

The consultation period closed on 15 March 2019.

All submissions were considered in finalising Part 1 of the pest risk analysis.

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