The Animal Health, Plant Health, Seeds and Seed Potatoes (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2021

13 January 2022
  • The Plant Health (Fees) (Forestry) (England and Scotland) Regulations 2015
  • The Official Controls (Plant Health and Genetically Modified Organisms) (England) Regulations 2019
  • GB Retained: Regulation (EU) 2016/2031 on protective measures against pests of plants
Comes into force: 26th November 2021
Jurisdiction:  UK
Following the UK’s exit from the EU, the transitional provision in The Plant Health (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020 is revised to extend to lower risk plants and products entering GB from EU Member States, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland. This is to ensure that failures of retained EU law and other flaws are addressed so that the Regulations operate effectively now that the UK is no longer part of the EU.
