Master Certificate for forest reproductive material

The Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira issues a master certificate for forest reproductive material derived from approved basic material. All seed lots brought to the market and used in forest-tree nurseries must have such a certificate.

No more than three months from the end of the extraction and purification of the seed lot, the seed extractor must apply for master certificates for seed lots.

Applications must be lodged, in good time and prior to the marketing of the material, for master certificates for clones or clonal mixtures produced by vegetative propagation.

Applications for master certificates should be submitted through the MEVI information system. To obtain a user ID, please contact Kari Leinonen or Harri Leinonen.
