Response to Draft Report for the Review of the Intergovernmental Agreement on Biosecurity

In late 2016 the Panel examining the Intergovernmental Agreement on Biosecurity ​released a Draft Report as the next step in its review of Australia’s biosecurity arrangements and the underpinning IGAB. The Draft Report follows the release of a Discussion Paper in May 2016, and the Review Panel’s consultation across the country between May and August 2016.

A Final Report is expected to be provided to Australian agriculture ministers in July 2017.

The Council of Rural RDCs provided a submission for consideration by the panel in response to the draft findings.
