This ABPM advises the final conditions endorsed by the Director of Quarantine.
The IRA was conducted in accordance with the routine process as described in the Import Risk Analysis Process Handbook,
which provides an opportunity for appeal to the Director of Quarantine. A stakeholder who considers that the process set out in the Handbook was not properly followed
, or that the risk analysis failed to consider a significant body of relevant scientific or technical information, may appeal to the Director of Quarantine. Appeals on other grounds can not be considered.
Information on appeals is made public. Appeals should be sent to:
Mr Michael Taylor
Director of Quarantine
Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry - Australia
GPO Box 858
CANBERRA ACT 2601
Appeals should be received by close of business on 12 April 2002. If there are no appeals, the attached conditions will be adopted on 19 April 2002. Animal Biosecurity will issue a further ABPM advising adoption or, alternatively, that an appeal has been received. All inquiries should be directed to the officer whose contact details appear below.
