Monday 11, Jan 2021

The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment has reviewed the containment requirements for AA classes 5.2, 7.2, 7.5, 7.6, 7.7 and applicable class 6.1s that have been assigned as biosecurity containment level 2 to reduce regulation, harmonise conditions with revised AS/NZ standards (where possible) and link with industry best practice.

The department will commence implementation of the new class 5 BC2 conditions on the 18th January 2021.

The new BC2 conditions are available on the department’s website. If you have any questions regarding the AA changes, please contact approved arrangements here
