Vinehealth Australia has identified 10 very high and high risk issues that require treatment to reduce the residual risk to a low level.

Details of the proposed actions are listed in the “Phylloxera Risk Assessment brochure”.

The 10 risks are –

  1. The risk of Phylloxera establishing in South Australia as a result of practices by unaccredited nursery operators and importers.
  2. The risk of Phylloxera establishing in South Australia as a result of the lack of effective national collaborative industry structures.
  3. The risk of Phylloxera establishing in South Australia as a result of a reduction in staff and operational knowledge in the industry across all zones (PIZ – Phylloxera Infested Zones, PRZ – Phylloxera Restricted Zones and PEZ – Phylloxera Exclusion Zones).
  4. The risk of Phylloxera establishing in South Australia due to the decline of economic returns within the industry.
  5. The risk of Phylloxera establishing in South Australia due to non-reporting of incidents across all zones (PEZ, PRZs & PIZs).
  6. The risk of a Phylloxera infestation being established by regulatory error (confusion by regulatory staff) between States and/or zones.
  7. The risk of a Phylloxera infestation being established due to inconsistency in regulations and communications between a PIZ and a PEZ.
  8. The risk of a Phylloxera infestation being established due to non-compliance, ignorance and disregard of regulations between a PIZ and a PEZ (illegal and accidental behaviour).
  9. The risk of a Phylloxera infestation begin established due to non-compliance, ignorance and disregard of regulations between a PIZ and a PRZ (illegal and accidental behaviour).
  10. The risk of a Phylloxera infestation being established due to non-compliance, ignorance and disregard of regulations between a PRZ and a PEZ (illegal and accidental behaviour).
