Quarantine Proclamation 1998

Authoritative Version
Proclamations/Other as amended, taking into account amendments up to Quarantine Legislation Amendment (2014 Measures No. 1) Proclamation 2014
Principal Instrument. Quarantine is designed to prevent the introduction into Australia and the establishment or spread within Australia, of human, animal or plant pests and diseases. The basic law is contained in the Quarantine Act 1908, which creates a system by which things that are likely to introduce pests or disease can be prevented from entering Australia. It also makes it possible to prevent the spread of a pest or disease by preventing the movement within Australia of things likely to spread the pest or disease. The basic way to impose these restrictions is by proclamation. Quarantine Proclamation 1998 contains these restrictions.

70  Things a Director of Quarantine must take into account when deciding whether to grant a permit for importation into Australia

                   In deciding whether to grant a permit to import a thing into Australia or for the removal of a thing from the Protected Zone or the Torres Strait Special Quarantine Zone to the rest of Australia, a Director of Quarantine:

                     (a)  must consider the level of quarantine risk if the permit were granted; and

                     (b)  must consider whether, if the permit were granted, the imposition of conditions on it would be necessary to limit the level of quarantine risk to one that is acceptably low; and

                   (ba)  for a permit to import a seed of a kind of plant that was produced by genetic manipulation—must take into account any risk assessment prepared, and any decision made, in relation to the seed under the Gene Technology Act; and

                     (c)  may take into account anything else that he or she knows that is relevant.

Note:          Level of quarantine risk is defined in section 5D of the Quarantine Act. The definition is as follows:

 

5D  Level of quarantine risk

              A reference in this Act to a level of quarantine risk is a reference to:

(a) the probability of:

(i) a disease or pest being introduced, established or spread in Australia, the Cocos Islands or Christmas Island; and

(ii) the disease or pest causing harm to human beings, animals, plants, other aspects of the environment, or economic activities; and

(b) the probable extent of the harm.

Part 10Revocation and savings

  

75  Saving of permits already granted

                   A permit to import a thing continues to have effect according to its terms if the permit:

                     (a)  was granted in accordance with subsection 13(2A) of the Quarantine Act on or after 7 July 1998; and

                     (b)  was in force immediately before 1 January 2005.
