Biosecurity is a critical part of our efforts to prevent, respond to and recover from pests and diseases that threaten the economy, industry, human health and the ​environment.

Protecting Australia’s biosecurity is a responsibility shared by government, industry and the general community.

Pests and diseases can be transported through Australian Ports from overseas vessels. If left unreported and not managed, they can spread quickly over large distances causing potential risk and harm.

Biosecurity management principles are incorporated into our ongoing training to staff as part of our AS/NZS ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System (EMS) accreditation since 1999.

All contractors working for, or on behalf of us, must undertake our induction which includes important information and expectation about biosecurity at our ports in line with Biosecurity Queensland (Department of Agriculture and Fisheries) guidelines.
