CreatorDirectorate General for Health and Food Safety
DescriptionInformation provided by the European Union Directorate General for Health and Food Safety on the marketing requirements for forest reproductive material. The page provides access to the Community List of Approved Basic Material for the Production of Forest Reproductive Material, based on the national lists as supplied by the Member States according to Article 10(2) of Council Directive 1999/105/EC. There is also a link to a list of the relevant EU legislation concerning forest reproductive material. In 1999, a Community scheme was set up by Council Directive 1999/105/EC on the marketing of forest reproductive material. The Directive ensures the plentiful supply of high quality forestry reproductive material of the species concerned within the Community by stipulating that forest reproductive material may not be marketed unless it is of one of four categories specified by the Directive and that only approved basic material (the trees from which reproductive material is harvested) may be used for its production if the material is to be marketed.
