The draft Regulation lays down phytosanitary import conditions for plants, plant products and other objects that may pose a phytosanitary risk to the European Union. The draft is based on the current import conditions as laid down in the Council Directive 2000/29/EU, which will be repealed and replaced with the provisions notified herewith, and on the existing plant health rules for marketing of certain seeds and propagating material.
The draft Regulation contains a number of Annexes that establish the list of plants, plant products and other objects (regulated articles) that shall be accompanied by a Phytosanitary Certificate when introduced into the European Union, the EU lists of quarantine pests and regulated non-quarantine pests, the list of protected zones in the European Union and the list of quarantine pests relevant thereto, the list of regulated articles the import of which into the European Union is prohibited and the lists of phytosanitary requirements that imported regulated articles shall comply with when introduced into the European Union or into specific protected zones. In addition, the draft Regulation also contains several Annexes establishing the rules for the internal movement of regulated articles in the European Union. These Annexes are provided for information and clarity purposes.
