Tools and resources

Our systems approach tool kit can help bring improved consistency and rigour to biosecurity risk management

A set of tools is being developed through this research that can be applied by biosecurity regulators, industry stakeholders and other researchers. The tool kit includes methods, models, interactive calculators, templates and other resources that can be used to:

  • Develop new systems approach-based phytosanitary protocols and validate their efficacy
  • Refine, simplify or more rigorously validate existing phytosanitary protocols
  • Assess the likely efficacy of protocols proposed in market access applications
  • Design rigorous risk management responses for wider biosecurity issues or incursions

A roadmap of our tools

This graphic shows the process that could be followed to develop a systems approach trade protocol, and where the tools developed through this research can be applied.

Coming soon

Over the coming months, we will upload further tools highlighted in the roadmap. We will also add a glossary of terms that are commonly used in the biosecurity and phytosanitary systems approach fields.
