BIOSECURITY ACT 2015 - SECT 621

Release from biosecurity control if goods leave destination part

             (1)  This section applies if goods:

                     (a)  become subject to biosecurity control because of the application (the basic application ) of the affected provisions as described in section 620 in relation to a movement (the basic movement ) of the goods from the origin part to the destination part; and

                     (b)  the goods leave the destination part.

             (2)  When the goods leave the destination part, they are taken to be released under section 162 from the biosecurity control to which they were subject because of the basic application.

             (3)  If, when the goods leave the destination part, they also leave Australian territory as described in subsection 119(4), the goods do not become subject to biosecurity control again because of that subsection and the fact that they were subject to biosecurity control because of the basic application.

             (4)  To avoid doubt, subsection (2) does not affect the status of goods being or becoming subject to biosecurity control for reasons other than the basic application.

Example:    If the goods were subject to biosecurity control while in the destination part for reasons other than the basic application (such as having entered Australian territory from a foreign country when they entered the origin part), subsection (2) does not treat them as being released from that control when they leave the destination part.
