Feedback on draft national biosecurity statement

The draft National Biosecurity Statement was proposed in the report Priorities for Australia’s Biosecurity System in June 2017. It was subsequently circulated for public comment at the national biosecurity roundtable and the environmental biosecurity roundtable meetings in November 2017.

The Invasive Species Council now provides the attached feedback on the draft statement. In summary we agree with most of the draft statement, however substantial changes are needed to the roles and responsibilities table to reflect the diversity of the environmental NGO sector and their biosecurity contributions.
