Grounds for revocation

             (1)  The Director of Biosecurity must revoke a biosecurity control order that is in force under section 353 if the Director is satisfied that the level of biosecurity risk posed by each disease or pest to which the order relates is no longer unacceptable.

Revocation is not a legislative instrument

                     (a)  give a copy of the revocation to a person in charge of the goods or conveyance, if it is practicable to do so; and

                     (b)  remove any copies of the original order that were affixed to, or as near as reasonably practicable to, the goods or conveyance.
