PLANT-QUARANTINE IMPORT RESTRICTIONS

OF THE

COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA


This revision of the plant quarantine import restrictions of
the Commonwealth of Australia appears to be necessary on
account of the numerous Proclamations and Statutory Rules
which have been issued since the original summary was issued.
It has been prepared for the information of nurserymen, plant
quarantine officials, and others interested in the exportation
of plants and plant products to any State in Australia.

The digest was prepared by Richard Faxon, Division of Foreign
Plant Quarantines, from the Proclamations and Statutory Rules
published in the Commonwealth Gazette up to and including those
dated October 19, 1950 and November 9, 1950. It was reviewed
by the Director of Quarantine (Plants) in Canberra.

The information contained in this circular is believed to be
correct and complete up to the time of preparation, but it is
not intended to be used independently of, nor as a substitute
for, the texts, and it is not to be interpreted as legally
authoritative.
