The Department's role in plant and tree health

The Plant Health Inspection Branch also has responsibility for the implementation of Plant Health legislation for non-arable plants and trees.

This involves surveillance for quarantine plant pests and diseases at all stages of the supply chain from import to retail, and in the wider environment, the registration and inspection of businesses issuing plant passports, implementation of statutory measures in the event of quarantine pest/disease outbreaks, and export certification.
