Importers Seeking Variation of Import Requirements

Please Note: Biosecurity Tasmania is currently NOT accepting new applications for variations to an Import Requirement. This position will be reviewed in the near future ahead of legislative changes as a result of the Biosecurity Act 2019.

These guidelines are for importers who wish to seek variations to existing Import Requirements detailed in the Plant Biosecurity Manual under the authority of the Plant Quarantine Act 1997.

Such requests will only be dealt with through a formal process of assessment as advised in these guidelines and using the application form that accompanies the guidelines.

Importers are asked to note timeframes for consideration, information they need to supply, and the preference for electronic submissions
