1 Introduction Biosecurity Promulgation 2008 is an act that has adopted strategic and integrated approach which prevents the entry of animal and plant pests and diseases into the Fiji Islands, controls their establishment and spread in the Fiji Islands, regulates the movement of animal and plant pests and diseases and of animals and plants and their products, facilitates international cooperation in respect of animal and plant diseases and for related matters. The Act encompasses policy and regulatory frameworks (including instruments and activities) for analysing and managing relevant pest and disease risks to human, animal and plant life and health, and associated risks to the environment. Additionally, aspects of food safety and prevention of zoonosis, the introduction of animal and plant diseases and pests, the safe introduction and release of living modified organisms (LMOs) and their products (e.g. genetically modified organisms or GMOs), and the introduction and management of invasive alien species are also comprehended. Biosecurity Authority of the Fiji Islands The fundamental objective of the Biosecurity Promulgation 2008 is to control pest and diseases by legal and administrative means. In order to avoid adverse effects from such pests and diseases on the economy, environment and health of the Fiji Islands, the Biosecurity Authority of Fiji (BAF) was established under the Biosecurity Promulgation in December Biosecurity Authority of Fiji is mandated to protect Fiji s agricultural sector from the introduction and spread of animal and plant pests and diseases, facilitate access to viable agro-export markets and ensure compliance of Fiji s agro-exports to overseas market requirements. Additionally, manages quarantine controls at borders to minimise the risk of exotic pests and diseases entering the country. It also provides import and export inspection and certification to help retain Fiji s favourable animal, plant and human health status and wide access to overseas export markets. The Biosecurity Promulgation 2008 furthermore, defines biosecurity import and export procedures, defines powers of Biosecurity Officers, empowers the Minister to make Regulations and to declare regulated pests and diseases, provides biosecurity controls on one or more areas of Fiji, defines offences and prescribes penalties for such offences and provides with respect to biosecurity emergencies. This paper elaborates on three sections of the Biosecurity Promulgation 2008 namely the: Part 5 Biosecurity Import Procedures Part 6 Biosecurity Export Procedures Part 7 Biosecurity Quarantine

The revoked biosecurity import permit refuses the biosecurity import clearance for an article or consignment. Upon revocation of the biosecurity import permit, the holder of the permit must surrender it to a biosecurity officer as soon as practical. Any permit holder under subsection 3 of section 38 contravenes hence, commits an offence.

The applicant will be notified in writing with brief reasons, if the export clearance is refused. Part 7 Biosecurity Quarantine 47. Biosecurity quarantine of regulated articles A biosecurity officer by notice in writing can order an exporter to direct their incoming regulated article in the biosecurity quarantine if: (a) The article is a prohibited import and must therefore be reconsigned or destroyed; (b) Quarantine is a biosecurity import requirement for the article; or (c) During biosecurity entry inspection or biosecurity import clearance inspection the article is found to be, or is suspected to be, infested, infected or contaminated. A biosecurity officer will direct the importer to remove the article to a specified biosecurity quarantine station, if an article is ordered into biosecurity quarantine.
