Biosecurity/Weeds

Biosecurity Legislation

An Act to provide modern, flexible tools and powers that allow effective, risk-based management of biosecurity in NSW. It will increase efficiency and decrease regulation in responding to biosecurity risks and provides a streamlined statutory framework to protect the NSW economy, environment and community from the negative impact of pests, diseases and weeds.


NSW WeedWise

NSW WeedWise contains over 300 weed profiles, describing:

  • Profile
  • Control (including registered herbicide options)
  • Biosecurity duty (under the Biosecurity Act 2015


Weed Categories

Weeds are often grouped in categories depending on their characteristics and impacts. Many weeds occur in more than one category. For example, alligator is a water weed and is also listed as one of Australia's Weeds of National Significance.

In NSW all plants are regulated with a general biosecurity duty to prevent, eliminate or minimise any biosecurity risk they may pose. Any person who deals with any plant, who knows (or ought to know) of any biosecurity risk, has a duty to ensure the risk is prevented, eliminated or minimised, so far as is reasonably practicable.
