Background

In February 2016, the Department of Agriculture notified stakeholders that it would be implementing a public register of Australian plant export authorised officers (see IAN 2016-08). 

The register contains the contact details, locations and accreditations for AOs working in the horticulture and grain industries.

Being on the register is not mandatory.
