Biosecurity legislation

Model biosecurity legislation has been produced, together with a summary, explanatory notes and outline subsidiary legislation. This is in a form which can be applied to any OT (or other jurisdiction); the Legal Checklist is a tool to analyse gaps in existing legislation with references to the relevant model text to facilitate use of the model as a resource. The Guidance on drafting biosecurity legislation draws on the experience of St Helena, and outlines the commitments and work expected from an OT receiving project help in drafting biosecurity legislation.

Two versions of the model text are available: the full one, and a simplified one, suitable for smaller OTs.
