Biosecurity is a moving target, and at times, it is possible to scratch one’s head in an arising biosecurity situation and ask oneself the question, “now where did this decision or interpretation come from?”.
The Government is increasing its efforts to explain why it takes certain positions with regard to biosecurity, and a good starting point for anyone trying to understand our country’s position on biosecurity better is the “New Zealand Biosecurity Response Guide”. This is a strategic high-level document, and is available at https://www.mpi.govt.nz/dmsdocument/31917-the-new-zealand-government-biosecurity-response-guide.
