Exporting from Western Australia

Australian states and territories have interstate quarantine regulations in place to control the movement of goods, which could carry and introduce pests and diseases. Preventing and minimising the spread of pests and diseases is important because, once established, they can be difficult and expensive to eradicate or control.

Western Australia has some pests and diseases which are of concern to other states such as Mediterranean fruit fly, green snail, western flower thrips, San Jose scale, melon thrips and lupin anthracnose. If you are moving or want to export goods to another state or territory, Quarantine WA can help you with information and certification that may be required.
