Department of Agriculture

Foods imported into Australia are subject to requirements under the Biosecurity Act 2015 and the Imported Food Control Act 1992, which are enforced by the Department of Agriculture.

In addition to the role of the Department of Agriculture at the border in relation to imported foods, state and territory food enforcement agencies are responsible for enforcing the requirements of the Code for all food available for sale within their jurisdiction, including both imported and domestically produced food.
