It's best to report anyway:
Under the Act everyone has a general biosecurity duty and shares responsibility to protect NSW from biosecurity threats.
For example, emergency pests, diseases or other biosecurity emergencies must be reported immediately. These are known as prohibited matter or biosecurity events. Notifable pests and diseases must be reported within 1 working day.
