The right to use a plant passport and supplier’s document

An enterprise using a plant passport or a supplier’s document will be granted the right to use these labels upon its entry into Evira’s plant health register, or at a later time subject to a separate application.

You will need the right to use a plant passport if you sell plant propagation material for species requiring a passport for professional further cultivation purposes, or to other companies for resale (i.e. when plants are sold, for instance, to plant stores).

The right to use a supplier’s document is required for the same operations as a plant passport. However, a supplier’s document is used for plant propagation material, regardless of the plant species. Many companies need the right to use both the passport and the certificate.

The right to use a plant passport or a supplier’s document is applied for on the same form used for registration in Evira’s plant health and propagation material register. On this form, you must indicate the labels which the application concerns.

An annual inspection to verify that the requirements for registration are being satisfied is carried out at enterprises holding the right to use a plant passport or supplier’s document. This inspection verifies that the company meets the legal obligations of a registered enterprise and that the plant passport and supplier’s document labels have been used appropriately.
