Biosecurity system oversight
MPI's system oversight role in New Zealand’s biosecurity requires looking across
all biosecurity activity, not just the MPI related parts. A successful Post-border
Biosecurity System needs the cooperation of several agencies. MPI takes the lead
role in dealing with pests that are considered a national priority; the Department
of Conservation manages pests on conservation estates, and Regional Authorities
are responsible for controlling pests within their geographical boundaries.
This website is a first step in collecting and presenting biosecurity activity and
performance data. We are developing a system to allow MPI as the lead agency in
biosecurity to monitor, measure, review and evaluate the performance of the system
and provide a nationwide tool for all pest management stakeholders.
Regional Pest Management
16 Regional Authorities throughout New Zealand have adopted Regional Pest Management
Strategies (RPMSs) that provide a strategic and statutory framework for efficient
and effective management of pest plants and animals in their region. We provide
a selection of reports that display the pest management activities throughout New
