Vaccination requirements for border / biosecurity officers - NSW Public Health Order

Friday, September 3, 2021
Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) and the Australian Peak Shippers Association (APSA) have contacted the Australian Border Force (ABF) and the Department of Agriculture Water and the Environment (the department) in terms of obligations in giving access to officers attending licensed / accredited premises in compliance with the  NSW Public Health (COVID-19 Additional Restrictions for Delta Outbreak) Order (No 2) 2021 (mandating residents of the 12 LGA's of concern be vaccinated if they leave their LGA of concern to perform essential work functions - effective from Monday 6 September 2021).

While we await a response from the ABF, we are pleased to share the following advice provided by the department (we understand a formal departmental notice will be produced next week).
