This is now an extension to the easement allowing GB Plant Passports to be affixed to retail-ready plants in the EU on behalf of GB Plant Passport holders. The new, fixed deadline of 30 June 2025 means importers have 24 months to put in place a labelling solution GB-side.
In the coming months, the UK’s Defra Plant Health Services and the HTA have agreed to jointly develop a pilot scheme looking at an electronic Plant Passporting system for those businesses that currently use the easement. This means there is potential for a modern, efficient, and alternative solution to physical labelling.
