Simplified outline of this Part

If goods become suspended or prohibited goods, the Director of Biosecurity (or, in the case of prohibited goods, the Director of Human Biosecurity) may require a person in charge of certain goods that are of the same kind as the suspended or prohibited goods, and were brought or imported into Australian territory before the date the goods became suspended or prohibited goods, to notify the Director of:

       (a)     the location of those goods; and

      (b)     any other information specified by the Director that the person has relating to those goods.

A biosecurity officer may ask questions or require documents to be produced about prohibited goods, suspended goods or certain conditionally non-prohibited goods that have been brought or imported into Australian territory and have been released from biosecurity control.

The powers in this Part may be exercised in relation to goods for the purpose of assessing or managing the level of biosecurity risk associated with the goods.
