It is necessary to update the phytosanitary requirements for underground structures for the vegetative propagation of ornamental species, in accordance with the latest scientific evidence and pest risk analysis.

This draft Resolution updates the following phytosanitary requirements for the importation of underground structures for the vegetative propagation of ornamental species. Attention is drawn to the following points in its content:

1.    For the purposes of this measure, underground structures for vegetative propagation shall be understood to mean all plant organs that develop under the surface of the soil and are used to multiply and propagate plants, such as bulbs, pseudo-bulbs, corms, tubers, rhizomes and tuberous roots;
