Consultation on proposed import requirements for propagative material of Rubus and Ribes spp. from all origins
Please be advised that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is currently consulting on a new proposed import directive, D-18-01: Phytosanitary import requirements for propagative material of Rubus and Ribes species from all origins.
This directive outlines the specific requirements that must be met in order to import regulated propagative material of Rubus and Ribes spp. from all origins. The proposed measures will help protect Canada from the introduction of regulated plant pests such as Rubus Stunt Phytoplasma, while also aligning our import requirements with those of our major trading partners.
This consultation period will be open until January 15, 2019. Comments can be submitted directly by email to email@example.com.
The directive is expected to be published on February 4, 2019. There will be a six-month transition period following publication.
