Risk Analyses

​​Biological control agent risk analyses, as opposed to plant commodity import risk analyses, do not assess the probability of entry, establishment and spread.

Biological control agents intended for release are deliberately introduced, distributed, aided to establish and spread. Therefore it would be inappropriate to assess the probability of entry, establishment and spread. Biological control agent risk analyses focus only on off-target effects, as this is the only concern with regard to the release of biological control agents.
