NEBRA Five Year Review Discussion Paper

The NFF advocates for a strong, robust and science-based approach to biosecurity and welcomes a review of NEBRA with the goal to strengthen emergency response to environmental biosecurity breaches. The NFF is concerned that the NEBRA review considers encouragement of “industry and private beneficiaries in cost sharing arrangements ” for environmental biosecurity measures that have, according to the NEBRA definition of nationally significant biosecurity incidents, predominantly public benefits. The NFF does not support the setting up of another levy on agricultural produce to fund another Research and Development Corporation for environmental biosecurity purposes.
