We are currently reviewing Australia’s import conditions for apiaceous crop seeds for sowing.

Apiaceous crops are species in the Apiaceae family which includes carrots, celery and parsnips as well as the herbs angelica, aniseed, caraway, chervil, coriander, cumin, dill, fennel and parsley.

We have now released a draft review evaluating the effectiveness of existing risk management measures and proposing new mandatory phytosanitary measures to reduce the risk of pests entering Australia.

You are invited to provide comments on the proposed measures described in this review and any other measures that might provide equivalent risk management outcomes.

Submissions on the draft report will close on 13 November 2017.

To make a submission:

  • read the draft review
  • submit your feedback via our online form, or by post or email.

We will consider all comments before finalising the review.

This review is funded under the Australian Government’s Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper and is one way we are strengthening biosecurity surveillance and analysis.
