New EU plant health rules

New EU plant health rules

EU rules on plant health form the EU Plant Health Regime which the Commission has reviewed for the first time since 1977.

The Commission has proposed a new EU plant health regulation in May 2013.

The proposal has been submitted to the European Parliament and Council for co-decision which may take several years.

The review included:

  • impact assessment of the legislative changes, supported by an economic study;
  • stakeholder consultations;
  • an evaluation.
