Declaring a standstill
Nationally, government and industry will make the decision to initiate a standstill. In Western Australia, the decision will be approved by the Chief Veterinary Officer of WA and communicated officially through the Government Gazette under the Exotic Diseases of Animals Act 1993.
The Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA) will inform key industry groups, who will share the responsibility to communicate the information to all relevant people by the fastest and most effective means.
