Honey Bee biosecurity

Apiarists and members of the community were invited to provide feedback on the proposed changes to support the implementation of the Australian Honey Bee Industry Biosecurity Code of Practice.

Submissions via the YourSAy website closed on 8 May 2017.

Some amendments to the Livestock Regulations 2013 are required to support the SA apiary industry’s adoption of the Australian Honey Bee Industry Biosecurity Code of Practice (the Code) and improve biosecurity management.

The Australian Honey Bee Industry Council endorsed the Code in July 2016 and there have been subsequent meetings between Biosecurity SA and South Australian beekeepers to explore changes to the Livestock Regulations 2013 to support its implementation.

A Discussion Paper (PDF 141.2 KB) has been prepared to outline proposals to manage the amendments to the legislation.
