IR Summary Index Tables

​​Tasmanian Plant Biosecurity Import Requirements Summary Index

For a wide range of commodities, along with specific pests (and diseases) of quarantine concern to Tasmania, a number of specific import requirements may apply.

Consequently, most plants, plant products or other prescribed matter imported into the State must meet one or more Import Requirements (IRs), as summarised in Import Requirement Index tables, Tables 2–4 of the Plant Bisoecurity Manual Tasmania – 2020 Edition.

Please note:

The following IR Index Tables, Tables 24:

  1. Summarise the Import Requirements (Conditions and Restrictions) that apply to a wide range of selected plants, plant products and other prescribed matter;
  2. The tables do not represent an exhaustive reference list. Rather, the tables focus on those commodities and materials that are commonly imported on a regular basis that may also represent a potential biosecurity risk to the State
  3. If an importer is wishing to import prescribed matter (including plants or plant products) into Tasmania that is not listed in the IR Index Tables, please contact Biosecurity Tasmania for further information as shown in the Biosecurity Tasmania contacts page, Section 1.1 of this Manual;
  4. The IR Index Tables specify some of the main disease and/or pest risks of biosecurity concern for Tasmania that are associated with each of these selected plants, plant products and other prescribed matter.


As stated in Section 2.1 - General Warnings (PBMTas 2020 Edition), the following actions will be taken with any non-compliance with an Import Requirement:

  1. All prescribed matter (including plants and plant products) is subject to inspection on arrival (see Section 2.7 of the Manual), and if necessary subject to treatment, re-export or destruction as appropriate.
  2. Any imported item that is inspected and found to be contaminated with soil or other prescribed matter will be held and directed either for treatment, re-export or destruction.
