EPPO Alert List

Alert !!!EPPO Alert List

(last updated in 2016-05)

 

The main purpose of the Alert List is to draw the attention of EPPO member countries to certain pests possibly presenting a risk to them and achieve early warning. Pests are marked with an asterisk* in the table below when a Pest Risk Analysis (PRA) is planned or under development within EPPO. The entry date corresponds to the date when the pest was added to the Alert List.

Read a short introduction to the EPPO Alert List.

View information on previously listed pests: in order to keep the Alert List reasonably short, pests are included on the Alert List on a temporary basis. Pests may be submitted to a Pest Risk Analysis (PRA), and depending on the results of this PRA they may be transferred to the EPPO A1/A2 Lists of pests recommended for regulation as quarantine pests. For the other pests, after a certain period (usually 3 years), if the relevant Panels consider that sufficient alert has been given to the NPPOs, pests are removed from the Alert List.
