Implementation of Directive 2017/1279 and country notifications

21 December 2017

With regard to the implementation of Directive 2017/1279 and the revised import conditions for citrus with regard to citrus canker, citrus greening and citrus black spot as well as for citrus products, peaches and nectarines, fruits of capsicum  and pomegranate originating from the African continent or Israel with regard to the spread of thaumatotibia, the Commission has published the list of countries, which have officially notified to the European Commission their status as of 21 December 2017.

The official list includes notifications from Australia, Brazil, Egypt, Japan, Israel, South Korea, Morocco, New Zealand, Turkey, Uruguay and the USA.  

The list be subject to an update until 22 December, available via:, as there will be added further specifications on the treatment of FCM/ thaumatotibia which are currently missing.

It is expected that further countries will be added to the list until tomorrow.  As the European Commission is closed between from 26 December 2017 to 2 January 2018, no further updates can be expected during that time. As of 1 January 2018 the affected EU imports from countries which have not notified the European Commission will be temporarily banned until notification.
