link to the Outbreak website with information on Official Control for quarantine plants pests

Attached is a fact sheet and link to the Outbreak website with information on Official Control for quarantine plants pests. This is a new policy that is now in place to support trade when an exotic plant pest or disease needs to be contained and controlled, but may no longer be subject to eradication. Appreciate if you can pass onto plant industries. AUSVEG are already well aware of it.
