The Forestry Commission have also developed a newsletter which outlines changes to importing wood and wood products if the UK leaves the EU with no deal. Separate to this there is also a Forest Reproductive Material (FRM) newsletter that has been issued by the Forestry Commission that provides important information in relation to FRM in the event of the UK leaving the EU with a no deal.     

If you have questions about any of the material on this page, please consult the Collated Comms document for further information, if your question has still not been answered you can get in touch with us by emailing: quoting 'Plant Breeders Rights and Seed Marketing' in your email subject line.
