Moving plants, plant products or related risk items, such as soil and machinery, from one area to another can introduce or spread pests and diseases. Before you move plants, plant products and related items, such as soil and machinery, make sure you comply with the relevant quarantine restrictions. If you supply produce to interstate markets, check with interstate authorities before sending.
To prevent or limit this spread in Australia, quarantine restrictions have been imposed on the movement of risk items out of infested areas. Effective quarantine is an important tool in maintaining Australia's reputation for safe agricultural products, and to preserve the health and viability of our farming areas. The introduction of a new pest into a previously uninfested area can disrupt the whole production and marketing cycle, and heavily affect producers and the regional communities they depend on.
