The NSW Biosecurity Act 2015 has commenced as of 1 July 2017.

Following extensive public consultation, the Biosecurity Act 2015 was passed by Parliament in September 2015 and will replace all or part of 14 Acts.

This marks an exciting time for biosecurity in NSW, allowing better management of biosecurity risks that impact on our economy, environment and the community.

Information about the new Act is available from the NSW Department of Industry.
