EU changes list of phytosanitary checks for cut flower import

The European Commission’s Standing Committee on Plant Health discussed some changes to the EU list of reduced phytosanitary checks of cut flowers at the EU borders. According to sources, one of the changes adopted concerns Roses from Uganda where 100% of the consignments imported into the EU are expected to be controlled at the EU borders from 1 September 2013. Previously, only 25% of consignments were controlled. Other changes will concern origins such as Colombia, Zimbabwe, Ecuador and Tanzania which will only apply from 1 January 2014. We will keep you posted with more details on these changes as soon the final official list of the introduced changes will be available. See the link below for more information.
