Title: UK members future import restrictions from EU
Post by: lebmung on November 17, 2020, 05:34:25 PM
Those from UK should hurry up to buy citrus trees from the rest of Europe as beginning from 2021 it would be very hard and expensive to get any plants from EU.

Exporting plants and plant products
From 1 January 2021, EU exports of plants, fruit and vegetables to Great Britain must comply with new Phytosanitary requirements, including phytosanitary certificates. If you export plants, fruit and vegetables to Great Britain, you should:

*check whether a phytosanitary certificate (PC) is required by contacting the plant health authority in your country or your local plant health inspector
*check if your plants require laboratory testing of samples to ensure they are free from pests and diseases or inspections during the growing season
*apply for a PC from the relevant National Plant Protection Organisation before export

Yeah Really boring for us who lives in Europe aswell. I will miss UK's market, I am Swedish and we have the same climate but not so big commercials. This is so stupid, I hope we can come together one day again. But at least Europe is staying strong!

OR will it just be Phytocertificate for imports and not for exports to Europe?

Phytocertificate is required.
Importing citrus from outside EU, including UK, is forbidden.
