Vytenis Andriukaitis said (about Anca Paduraru): "I am very pleased that we have started the process of implementing the new Plant Health regulation. The introduction of a harmonised plant passport is only the first step in modernising the rules to protect EU plants, economy and agriculture.'' Starting from 14 December 2019, plant passports will be required to accompany all consignments of plants traded between professionals within the European Union territory.

Over the years the EU has developed legal and operational tools against this heinous crime.

I call on all Member States to urgently step up their investigations and prosecutions against ruthless trafficking criminals, better protect the victims and fully apply the EU rules towards their protection.
