BIOSECURITY ACT 1993: The Biosecurity Act 1993 guides pest management in New Zealand.

It has two main purposes:

  1. Border control and surveillance to keep pests out of New Zealand.
  2. Management of pests that have already established.

The Department of Conservation and regional councils are responsible for managing pests that have already established in New Zealand.  Border control is the responsibility of the Ministry for Primary Industries.
