BIOSECURITY ACT 2015 - SECT 235

Simplified outline of this Part

This Part makes provision in relation to the places (the entry points ) in Australian territory where incoming aircraft and vessels can land or be moored.

Division 2 deals with entry points for aircraft. Unless permitted or directed to do otherwise, an aircraft must land at a first point of entry for the aircraft and, if there is a biosecurity entry point for the aircraft at that first point of entry, the aircraft must be brought to that biosecurity entry point.

Division 3 deals with entry points for vessels. Unless permitted or directed to do otherwise, a vessel must be moored at a first point of entry for the vessel and, if there is a biosecurity entry point for the vessel at that first point of entry, the vessel must be brought to that biosecurity entry point.

Division 4 allows for directions to be given requiring activities to control vectors to be carried out in first points of entry. Division 4 also provides for biosecurity officers and biosecurity enforcement officers to enter landing places or ports where an aircraft or vessel that is subject to biosecurity control has arrived, or intends to arrive, for the purpose of performing functions or exercising powers under this Act.
