​NSW Biosecurity (Animal and Plant) Emergency Sub Plan

The NSW Biosecurity (Animal and Plant) Emergency Sub-Plan (formerly known as the NSW Animal Health Emergency Sub-Plan) has been prepared as a Sub-Plan to the NSW State Emergency Management Plan (formerly known as the NSW State Disaster Plan (DISPLAN)) to detail the control and coordination arrangements for the response to and initial recovery from a biosecurity emergency in New South Wales relating to animals and plants (not humans). It is also the NSW Emergency Animal Disease Counter Disaster Plan under the Australian Veterinary Emergency Plan (AUSVETPLAN).

The Sub-Plan is authorised in accordance with the provisions of the State Emergency and Rescue Management Act 1989.
