DescriptionActivities at Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira aim at ensuring food safety, promoting animal health and welfare, and developing the prerequisites for plant and animal production, and plant health. The Act on Trade in Forest Reproductive Material is enforced by the Plant Health Unit of Evira. Information about cultivation and production, sales and marketing, and import and export of forest reproductive material is given on the Evira web-page. The web-page also provides access to the MEVI information system: suppliers of forest reproductive material can use the system to submit seed collection notifications, apply for master certificates, and submit notifications of seed and planting stock lots marketed to other EU member states. Evira uses the MEVI system to monitor seeds' chains of origin from the forest or forest tree seed orchards to the nursery. Links are provided to the relevant national and EU legislation governing production of forest reproductive material. The site also provides species information; maps of regions of provenance for 14 species; a thermal time map of Finland; and utilisation areas of seed orchards (for Scots pine, Norway spruce, birch, larch, alder).
