    The discipline of formal pre-border Weed Risk Assessment (WRA), initiated in the late 1980s, is now well established. Significant developments in post-border Weed Risk Management (WRM) systems are more recent, with the publication of the Australian and New Zealand Standard for National Post-Border Weed Risk Management Protocol HB 294:2006 (the protocol) in 2006. During 2011â¿¿2012, the protocol was updated. The revised protocol reflects developments in: risk management practice and in indicating the reliability of predictions; the management of contentious plants; and the translation of WRM results into policy and management responses.
