Port of Tauranga biosecurity operational excellence

02 June 2016

Last week KVH met with other steering group members for the third meeting of the Port of Tauranga Biosecurity Operational Excellence initiative.

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) presented a risk profile analysis on Port of Tauranga (POTL), identifying the pests most commonly intercepted through this pathway to help the initiative target its efforts on these pests.

The group also agreed to develop performance monitoring criteria to support effectiveness of activities.

Research providers from the National Science Challenge, B3 (Better Border Biosecurity) and Scion presented initial proposals on how science could help improve biosecurity effectiveness at the POT.

The next steering group meeting is scheduled for October.
