Launch of the EPPO/CoE/EEA questionnaire on the implementation of the Code of conduct on horticulture and invasive alien plants


In 2009, EPPO and the Council of Europe jointly drafted and published a European Code of conduct on horticulture and invasive alien plants. This Code of conduct, initially available in English and French, has also been translated in Spanish, Polish and Czech.

In order to assess the implementation of this Code of conduct within European and Mediterranean countries, EPPO, the Council of Europe and the European Environment Agency (EEA) are joining forces to launch an electronic questionnaire to gather information on this matter. The questionnaire is directed to the 50 National Plant Protection Organizations of the EPPO region (through EPPO), Ministries of the Environment, NGOs and the general public through the Council of Europe and the EEA.

This questionnaire only takes 20 minutes to complete and is open till the 31th of May at the following link: http://survey.eppo.org/codeconduct.php
