Tasmanian Biosecurity Strategy 2013-2017

​​​​​​​Tasmanian Biosecurity Strategy 2013-2017 coverBiosecurity is the protection of industries, the environment and public well-being, health, amenity and safety from the negative impacts of pests, diseases, and weeds. Tasmania's biosecurity policy objective is to protect and enhance Tasmania's biosecurity status for the benefit of Tasmania's industries, environment and public well being, health, amenity and safety.

The Tasmanian Biosecurity Strategy 2013-2017 is the high level document that sets the overall direction for Tasmania's biosecurity system. 

The Tasmanian Biosecurity Strategy is currently being updated​ to ensure that our system continues to be ​contemporary and effective. Until this occurs, the current strategy remains in place.
