EU new regulation amending EC 1235/2008- removing recognition for category F: seeds and propagative material

Please note an amendment to EC 1235/2008 regulation section F has been published.

Under ACO private equivalency to EU, Section F referring to seeds and propagative materials has been removed, however any materials meeting National standard equivalency to EU will still be covered under the NS equivalency.

This change impacts operators outside of Australia which are not included under National standard – EU equivalency; and are not currenlty certified to EU certification.

As an operator outside of Australia and no EU certification, should you wish to export seeds and propagative materials to EU; you will need to apply for direct EU certification via ACO.



Please contact ACO if you have any questions @ 07 3350 5706
