The Tasmanian Biosecurity Compendium

​​​​​​​​​​​These webpages form the basis of the Tasmanian biosecurity compendium and house​ the information and regulatory listings required of the Tasmanian Government in section 9 of the Biosecurity Act 2019 (the Act).

The biosecurity compendium ​houses lists of permitted matter, restricted matter, prohibited matter and declared pests and diseases as defined by the Act and the Biosecurity Regulations 2022. It also houses Group Permits issued under section 110​ of the Act, and an archive of any Tasmanian Gazette notices within which biosecurity matter has been declared under the Act. 

​The biosecurity compendium will be reviewed and updated on a continuing basis and future versions of the biosecurity compendium will include more extensive information on Tasmania’s biosecurity system and import requirements. ​​

If you wish to​ find the regulatory status of a specific commodity and it is not listed within the biosecurity compendium, it is classed as restricted matter by default until risk assessed by Biosecurity Tasmania.​​​
