EU ask for feedback on draft plant regulation

Apple orchard_3834

The EU has asked for feedback on a draft regulation that lists high-risk plants and plants for which a phytosanitary certificate is not required.

High-risk plants, listed in Annex I of the draft regulation, are defined as plants and plant products from third countries that present a pest risk to EU territory.

The regulation would prohibit the introduction of such plants into EU territory pending a risk assessment.

Annex II of the draft regulation lists plants that would not need a phytosanitary certificate to be introduced to EU territory from third countries.

Click here to view the draft regulation and submit any feedback directly. Alternatively, please email Y2hyaXMuaGFydGZpZWxkQG5mdS5vcmcudWs= with any comments by 13 August and the NFU will consider giving feedback on behalf of its members.
