The Orders are made by the Minister or Chief Veterinary Officer (CVO) under the Livestock Disease Control Act 1994. In this instance the Orders have been signed by the CVO and are in effect for 72 hours. After that time, the CVO may sign further short-term Orders or the Minister may sign Orders for longer durations.

The Orders may declare any land, premises, place or area to be a Restricted and Control Areas, specifying any prohibitions, restrictions or requirements to operate within those areas.

The Orders are required to be published in the Government Gazette.

These Orders and future revisions will be published on this website.
