  • On occasions, an exotic plant pest or disease may enter Australia that cannot be eradicated. (
  • In these circumstances, responsibility for managing the pest or disease rests with industry and the government of the state or territory in which it occurs. (
  • When 'official control' is applied, the state or territory government has put in place measures that aim to contain and control the pest or disease. (
  • When other countries become aware of the presence of the pest or disease in Australia, it can trigger trade bans or restrictions on our exports, and requests for Australia to review its current import conditions. (
  • If we can provide our trading partners with evidence that we have the pest or disease under official control, the department can continue to justify regulating international imports to prevent pest entry. (
