Revision of the EPPO Specific Quarantine Requirements (SQRs)
The last published version of the EPPO SQRs was EPPO Technical Document no. 1008, which appeared in 1990. Since then a few SQRs then marked as 'still under study' have been approved by Council. Subsequently, the EPPO Working Party on Phytosanitary Regulations started a study comparing the SQRs with Annex IV of EU Directive 77/93 to ensure compatibility as far as possible. In 1995-09, EPPO Council approved a first set of such revised SQRs.
The EPPO Secretariat does not propose to publish a new hardcopy version of the SQRs until the comparative study has been completed (probably 3-4 years). However, a provisional up-to-date version is available as a Word for Windows file on diskette, and can be sent on request. Write, fax or e-mail EPPO for the 'SQRs on diskette'.
