NSW State of Biosecurity Report

Successful biosecurity risk management is critical for the protection of the NSW economy, industry, environment, and the health and wellbeing of communities.

Biosecurity benefits NSW by protecting the state from the negative impacts of animal and plant pests, diseases, and weeds. A robust biosecurity management system brings with it a range of benefits for NSW, including:

  • Supporting economic growth – through profitable food industries, agriculture, and tourism
  • Protecting our unique environment
  • Safeguarding the health and amenity of our community

The NSW Government committed to the tabling in both Houses of Parliament once every four years, a state of biosecurity report for New South Wales.

The purpose of the State of Biosecurity report is to assess the status of Biosecurity in NSW and highlights the progress in achieving the objectives of the NSW Biosecurity Strategy.
