EU grants UK certified seed equivalence
Monday, April 12, 2021
The European Union has granted equivalence for UK certified seed of cereal, fodder, beet, vegetable, oil and fibre plants, a move that means seed of these crops can now be exported to EU member states. Exporters from Great Britain will now need to obtain a Phytosanitary Certificate before exporting a batch of seed. They must also arrange with their EU customer the completion of a Common Health Entry Document for Plant Products (CHED PP) through TRACES (Trade Control and Export System). This is an EU online system used by traders or their agents to provide pre-notification of Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) goods entering the European Union. The seed will also need to be OECD labelled where it is a species in an OECD scheme; be ISTA sampled; and have an Orange International Certificate.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
