Used Machinery and Australian Biosecurity

Biosecurity is a set of preventive measures designed to reduce the risk of transmission of infectious diseases in crops and livestock, quarantined pests, invasive alien species, and living modified organisms. The emerging nature of biosecurity threats means that small-scale risks blow up rapidly, thus an effective policy becomes a challenge for there are limitations on time and resources available for analyzing threats and estimating the likelihood of their occurrence. In terms of biosecurity inspection services offered by Freightplus, these apply most commonly to quarantine regulations for importing used machinery. In particular, there are strict quarantine requirements for importing used machinery into Australia, importing used machinery into New Zealand, importing used machinery into New Caledonia and importing used machinery into the US.
