Department of Agriculture Au / Ministery of Agriculture and Forestry NZ
The Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry and MAF is the Ministery of Agriculture and Forestry of the NZ Government.
DoA & MAF’s import and export inspection and certification is essential to maintaining Australia / New Zealand’s highly favorable animal, plant and human health status and access to export markets. Quarantine controls at our borders also minimise the risk of exotic pests and diseases to protect Australia / New Zealand’s agriculture industries and Environment.
Many countries have pests and diseases that could have disastrous effects on our animals and plants. These pests and diseases could be carried by people, by animals, in animal products such as meat, in plants or in plant products such as timber, or in soil on machinery.
All of these must undergo quarantine inspection, and many plants and animals must be isolated at quarantine stations so any pest or disease risks can be identified and prevented from entering the community.
Passenger and cargo clearance are the main aspects of quarantine control at entry points into Australia and New Zealand.
All of our Customs Brokers hold Quarantine Accreditation that will enable them to assess and / or process quarantine issues in house.
