Vinehealth Australia advises industry that the development of the new Biosecurity Act has reached a new milestone, with a draft Bill now available for review. This Bill has been drafted based on feedback from previous consultations and submissions since the work began in 2019. The draft Bill once passed through Parliament will become an Act.
Public consultation is now underway until 26 September 2023 for stakeholders to have their say on the draft Biosecurity Bill. Feedback to the draft Biosecurity Bill can be provided to PIRSA by completing a survey via YourSAy.
We remind industry that the Phylloxera and Grape Industry Act 1995 was originally one of the Acts identified to be repealed and incorporated into this Bill, however this is no longer the case.
