Our biosecurity management process recognises that effective prevention and management of identified weeds, pathogens and pests is a high priority for landholders.

We comply with the Biosecurity Act 2014 around Restricted and Prohibited Matter (i.e. identified weeds, pathogens and pests), and take actions to ensure our activities do not introduce or spread biosecurity matter.

Powerlink works cooperatively with landholders, Local Governments and the State Government in the shared responsibility of establishing management requirements appropriate to the level of risk.

Information on our biosecurity management practices:


We support research into the spread and destruction of potential biosecurity threats and have developed action plans to identify and minimise the effects of disease outbreaks. We also continue to provide relevant and appropriate support to government agencies and landholders on these topics.
