Diagnostic resources for priority pests

The pests listed below are the basis for the development of diagnostic resources by SPHD, and is compiled from the High Priority Pests (HPPs) identified in Industry Biosecurity Plans  and other sources of prioritised diagnostic needs.

The available diagnostic resources listed in the table include the Australian National Diagnostic Protocols (NDP) together with diagnostic protocols developed by the IPPC, EPPO and NAPPO. For further information on the diagnostic resources for a particular pest please email us.

Information on molecular techniques for the identification of a number of fungal pathogens was compiled in 2014 in a project facilitated by SPHD. Where molecular information is available ‘Molecular’ will appear in the Other Resources column. For further information please email us.

There are specific import restrictions that apply to HPPs, which can be accessed through the Biosecurity Import Conditions Database (BICON).

Australian NDPs have been:

  • drafted and reviewed in accordance with the SPHD Reference Standards
  • endorsed by the Subcommittee on Plant Health Diagnostics

Use of NDPs during incident response will:

  • allow you to rapidly and accurately diagnose specific plant pests
  • help you be consistent with Australia’s agreed approach to diagnosing plant pests
  • help ensure Australia meets its international plant protection obligations

Guidelines for reporting new plant pathogens are outlined in these two documents.

To display NDPs only type NDP in the search field.
