BIOSECURITY ACT 2015 - SECT 61

Contents of a human biosecurity control order

             (1)  A human biosecurity control order that is in force in relation to an individual must specify the following:

                     (a)  the ground in subsection 60(2) under which the order is imposed on the individual;

                     (b)  the listed human disease in relation to which the order is imposed on the individual;

                     (c)  any signs or symptoms of the listed human disease;

                     (d)  the prescribed contact information provided by the individual under section 69 or 70 (as the case requires);

                     (e)  a unique identifier for the order;

                      (f)  each biosecurity measure (specified in Subdivision B of Division 3) with which the individual must comply, and an explanation of:

                              (i)  why each biosecurity measure is required; and

                             (ii)  in relation to a biosecurity measure included under section 89 (decontamination), 90 (examination), 91 (body samples) or 92 (vaccination or treatment)--how the biosecurity measure is to be undertaken;

                     (g)  any information required to be included in the order by Subdivision B of Division 3;

                     (h)  the period during which the order is in force, which must not be more than 3 months;

                      (i)  the following:

                              (i)  the effect of section 70 (requirement to notify of changes to contact information);

                             (ii)  the effect of section 74 (when an individual is required to comply with a biosecurity measure);

                            (iii)  the rights of review in relation to the human biosecurity control order under this Act, the Administrative Appeals Tribunal Act 1975 and the Administrative Decisions (Judicial Review) Act 1977 ;

                            (iv)  the effect of section 107 (offence for failing to comply with an order);

                      (j)  details of a chief human biosecurity officer who can be contacted for information and support in relation to the order;

                     (k)  any other information that the officer imposing the order considers appropriate;

                      (l)  any other information required by the regulations.

Note:          Despite paragraph (1)(h), an individual might be required to comply with a biosecurity measure for a more limited period of time (see for example section 96 (traveller movement measure)).

             (2)  If a human biosecurity control order ceases to be in force, paragraph (1)(h) does not prevent another human biosecurity control order from being imposed on the same individual.

             (3)  To avoid doubt, a human biosecurity control order that is varied must comply with subsection (1).
