All submissions received by the closing date will be considered before the amended import health standards (IHSs) are issued. MPI may hold late submissions on file for consideration when the issued IHSs are next revised or reviewed.
After we have considered all submissions there is a 10-day period which provides submitters with the opportunity to examine any changes to the IHSs which have resulted from consultation. An independent review (under section 24 of the Biosecurity Act 1993) may be requested in this period if a submitter considers scientific evidence they raised during their submission has not received sufficient consideration. If there is no review, the IHSs become final after 10 days.
