Notifiable diseases

Notifiable diseases

If you suspect the presence of any notifiable organism or disease (that you believe is new to the region or New Zealand) on land or stock that you are responsible for, section 46 of the Biosecurity Act 1993 requires you to notify your regional council and the Ministry for Primary Industries.  Do not wait for your vet's diagnosis.
