Quarantine is a serious issue in Australia not just for imported products
but also products between each state.
There are a large number of requirements for the transport of plants and agricultural material including machinery between states.
Whilst they may seem to be a burden the issues are real and non-compliance
can cause serious damage to various industries with huge long-term
costs to the economy.
Some pests, diseases and invasive plants can also do serious harm
to our health or environment, not just our economy.
Australia has many pests already introduced into areas of Australia that are contained to certain regions or states and it is only the state quarantine requirements that prevent further spread of these pests.
It is very important to understand your state's requirements and only
purchase from suppliers who are approved and inspected regularly
to ensure compliance can be met.
Some states like W.A, Tasmania and NT require certification for all plant
movement. The rest of the states rely on the public to do the right thing.
