Import of ware potatoes from countried outside the EPPO region


In the interests of mutual protection, countries importing ware potatoes from countries outside the EPPO region are advised to take care of the risk of importing quarantine pests and diseases (viruses, bacteria, etc.).

For that reason import inspections should be very strict and sprout suppression in the country of origin or after import should be required.
