This study involves the review of biosecurity agencies, guidelines and procedures and recommends a framework/system that could be implemented in Cameroon. Biosecurity requires the adoption of a set of attitudes and behaviour by people to reduce risk in all activities involving domestic, human, animal, and plant health, environmental protection, LMOs and invasive alien species. Biosecurity must be practical and sustainable for all – for producers, for traders, for intermediaries and service providers and for all those pursuing activities that could contain the seed of risk. Designing feasible framework/ legislation for biosecurity will require working with all key stakeholders to ensure that this happens and that those who will have to implement the measures accept the need to do so and see the benefits in doing so.
