States are designated under the Health Act 1947 by the Minister for Health following consultation with the Minister for Foreign Affairs and across Government as necessary.

Each designation and revocation is informed by a detailed and individualised risk assessment on a country basis by public health experts and senior officials. Recommendations arising from these assessments are considered by both the CMO and Minister for Health prior to designation.
