The goal of the border biosecurity programme is to maintain the pest free status of the Chatham Islands and facilitate the safe movement of people, freight, and equipment.

Anything shipped or transported could provide a pathway for pests (such as weed species, insects, marine pests & diseases) to arrive on the Chatham Islands. In fact, some high-risk pathways like soil are prohibited.
