Plant passports – plant pests traceability codes

Plant passports – plant pests traceability codes

7 Jan 2020

The European Commission is consulting on the mandatory use of traceability codes, and in particular the types and species of plants for planting not exempted from the traceability code requirement for plant passports under Regulation (EU) 2016/2031 of the European Parliament and of the Council and repealing Commission Directive 92/105/EEC.

The proposed regulation proposes that types and species of plants for planting not exempted from the traceability code requirement for plant passports are:

  • All plants for planting that produce a persistent wood stem, including trees, shrubs, vines and climbing plants
  • Plants for planting of stolon- or tuber-forming species of Solanum L. or their hybrids, other than those intended exclusively for ornamental purposes.

For more information see the EU consultation on the draft regulation.
