EU Plant Health Review

The European Community plant health regime was set up to protect the Community against the harm caused by the introduction and spread of pests and diseases affecting plants, including trees, and products thereof. A number of new elements were introduced in 1993 with the completion of the Single Market. While these have largely worked well over the years it is now recognised that there is a need for a full evaluation and that any changes needed to ensure that it continues to be able to meet its objectives are identified and implemented.

To view background information on the Community plant health regime and also the ‘Terms of Reference’ for the review.

The review will take some time to complete and any changes are not expected to be implemented until, tentatively, 2012. As the review progresses we will update the EU Plant Health Review pages on this site. If you wish to submit any comments on any aspect of the review, please send your comments to plant.health@forestry.gsi.gov.uk. (Updated 17 July 2009)
