That the officer responsible for the importation of horses arrange for Biosecurity Australia to conduct within six months, an inspection and review of the process of horse importation from the time horses arrive in Australia until the completion of their post-arrival quarantine in order to:
(a) identify all relevant biosecurity risks
(b) review the standard operating procedures for clearance and quarantine
of horses, as issued on 5 December 2007
(c) recommend any changes that should be made to those operating procedures, after taking account of my other recommendations and comments in this report.
