Changes to EU plant health checks – reductions and increases coming into effect

21 December 2017

The Commission has published details of the reduced check trades to apply for 2018 here.  

There are a number of increased levels of checks which importers need to be aware of, including 100% checks for citrus from Egypt, citrus other from Israel, malus from USA, prunus persica from South Africa, and capsicum from Israel.

Most of these changes will take effect from 1 February 2018 (due to the lateness of agreeing the changes) other than tomatoes from Canary Islands and Morocco, which take effect from 1 January 2018, to line up with the regulation of this product. 

There will be a slight delay in implementing the regulation of tomato (including reduced checks), but also a delay in charging arrangements, so APHA does not anticipate that FPC members will lose out from the delay in applying the reduced checks for tomato.
