Export of plants to non-EU countries
Export of plants to non-EU countries must comply with the requirements set by the destination countries. These vary by country and by product. The exporter must contact the destination country’s authorities well in advance of exporting material, to establish the requirements applicable to the products intended for export.
In general, all living plants and a number of plant products require a phytosanitary certificate, granted by Evira on the basis of the export notification. Exporters of products requiring a phytosanitary certificate must register with Evira’s plant health register.
Exported products are inspected through inspections conducted at production sites and inspections of export batches immediately prior to export.
