New EU regulations on plant health

In October 2016, a new European Regulation (EU) 2016/2031 (Regulation) on protective measures against plant pests was adopted. The Regulation repeals and replaces seven existing European Directives on harmful organisms. They entered into force on 13 December 2016 and will be directly applicable in all of the EU Member States from 14 December 2019.

These new regulations aim to modernise the EU plant health regime, enhancing more effective measures for the protection of the Union's territory and its plants.

The regulations will also impose additional obligations and responsibilities for professional operators.
