Following Vinehealth’s Industry Notice dated 15 August 2023, advising of the new draft Biosecurity Bill for South Australia being available for public comment, Vinehealth advises that it is finalising its feedback as part of the public consultation process.

To inform Vinehealth’s response we have sought Crown Solicitor advice to assist in identifying areas requiring further clarification, particularly in relation to the interactions between the Phylloxera and Grape Industry Act 1995 (PGI Act) and the draft Biosecurity Bill; noting that the PGI Act will remain a standalone biosecurity Act.

In this Industry Notice, we provide high level commentary and key points we are utilising as part of our feedback submission. We encourage industry submitting responses to review these points and utilise these sentiments where appropriate.
