Summary

The new EU plant health regime focuses on preventing the introduction of new pests into the Union via imports from third countries. Regulation (EU) 2018/2019 establishes a list of high risk plants whose entry into EU territory is prohibited until a full risk assessment has been carried out. It also establishes plants of low risk, for which imports into the EU do not require a phytosanitary certificate.
