Established in December 2014, KiwiNet is the team of people selected from right across the kiwifruit industry who champion biosecurity readiness and coordinate the deployment of kiwifruit industry resources into biosecurity responses. KiwiNet exists to reduce the impacts on our industry if/when we face our next major biosecurity incursion, to retain the key lessons from our Psa-V experience and to build on this and to enable a pan-industry approach.
Each KiwiNet coordinator has been issued with a KiwiNet Handbook
The KiwiNet Handbook covers:

Information for KiwiNet Responders
KiwiNet team members may be asked at any time to participate in a biosecurity response. The information below is intended to assist KiwiNet responders in learning about a typical response, what you will need if attending, the timeline of decision-making for KiwiNet coordinators, draft agendas for conference calls, a general guideline on how costs will be apportioned and role cards for positions that KiwiNet responders may undertake. Note that positions/roles are allocated on an as-needed rather than an as-requested basis.
