Canterbury Quarantine Services 2011 Limited must comply with stringent security and quarantine requirements.
Those requirements are intended to ensure that:
No diseased animal enters New Zealand
No disease is spread among animals in the quarantine facility or outside of the quarantine facility.
If an animal contracts or is carrying a disease or virus which the facility exists to constrain, then that disease or virus will spread no further.
New Zealand Law requires that if during the period of quarantine an animal contract’s such a disease or illness, then the animal will be treated, exported, destroyed or detained further in quarantine.
