The report describes an economic assessment of a proposed program to offer OIE-compliant compartmentalisation to producers in Australian animal production industries, with a focus on
export-oriented poultry enterprises. The focus on poultry exporters does not imply that these are the only, or the largest, potential beneficiaries of an Australian compartmentalisation
program. Other intensive and vertically integrated industries, including pig, aquaculture and animal genetic material industries, may benefit substantially from compartmentalisation. The
underlying principles of compartmentalisation also apply to export market access for plants and plant products, however this was not within scope of this assessment. The assessment was
undertaken by the Centre of Excellence for Biosecurity Risk Analysis (CEBRA) at the request of the Department of Agriculture.
