Upcoming Legislation in the Autumn – Additional Measures

Along with the pest measures announced on 26th May (see this link), additional measures are proposed to deregulate certain pests (Apricot latent virus, Aucuba mosaic agent and blackcurrant yellows agent, Epidiaspis leperii, Heterodera fici, Pseudomonas savastanoi pv. savastanoi). These pests are not considered a risk to GB. Please refer to this Q&A document for further information.

The WTO have been notified of these pest measures, (see supplementary information here), which should come into force in December 2021.
