The National Pest Management Plan (NPMP) for Bovine Tuberculosis is given legal effect by the Biosecurity (National Bovine Tuberculosis Pest Management Plan) Order 1998 (the Order).  

TBfree NZ is the Management Agency for the NPMP pursuant to Section 100 of Biosecurity Act 1993 and Clause 6 of the Order.

A National Operational Plan (NOP) to meet NPMP objectives has been prepared by TBfree NZ as required under Section 100B of the Biosecurity Act 1993. The NOP can be found below.

The NPMP is partly funded by levies on the slaughter of cattle and deer payable under the Biosecurity (Bovine Tuberculosis—Cattle and Deer Levy) Order 2016.
