Thank you for your interest. The period for making submissions has now closed.



DairyNZ, Beef+Lamb New Zealand (B+LNZ), and Deer Industry New Zealand (DINZ) are now considering the submissions received about their separate proposals to join other primary sector groups in signing the Government Industry Agreement for Biosecurity Readiness and Response Deed (the GIA).

Although the cut-off date for submissions was 12 noon on 6 December 2017, you can still read about the proposals in the following documents:


If DairyNZ, B+LNZ and DINZ conclude, independently, that the submissions received indicate sufficient support to proceed, they aim to submit their separate applications to become GIA Signatories by the end of 2017.

Federated Farmers is currently working through its proposal and will consult separately with its members in the coming months.
