The findings of the report are presented under three themes, Prevention, Early Detection and Response.
Under 'Prevention', the report examines how approaching threats are identified and Australia’s import conditions are managed to reflect the identified pest risks.
Under 'Early Detection', the current pest surveillance and diagnostic systems are examined, including impediments to early pest reporting.
Finally, under 'Response', the report looks at the continued use of Contingency Plans, the arrangements for managing responses on land under Commonwealth control, managing pests that predominantly impact on the environment and the arrangements for managing pest detections in northern Australia.
