BIOSECURITY ACT 2015 - SECT 131

Biosecurity measures may be required in relation to goods

                   If a biosecurity officer suspects, on reasonable grounds, that the level of biosecurity risk associated with goods that are subject to biosecurity control is unacceptable, a biosecurity officer may require biosecurity measures to be taken in relation to the goods as set out in this Division.

Note 1:       This Division also applies in relation to exposed goods in relation to which an exposed goods order is in force. This Division applies to those goods as if they were subject to biosecurity control (see subsection 161(1)).

Note 2:       Sections 626 and 627 deal with abandoned and forfeited goods in relation to which biosecurity measures have been required under this Division.
