EPPO Reporting Service


The EPPO Reporting Service is a free monthly newsletter on events of phytosanitary concern (e.g. new pest outbreaks, new host plants, new diagnostic methods). It focuses mainly on regulated pests (including invasive alien plants), as well as on emerging pests that may present a risk to the EPPO region.


Short articles are prepared by the EPPO Secretariat which collects information from the scientific literature (horizon scanning) and receives official pest reports from the NPPOs of its member countries. The EPPO Reporting Service is published in English and French.



  • All EPPO Reporting Service issues are stored in the EPPO Global Database (current issue back to 1974). The digitalization of all archives of the EPPO Reporting Service  (1973 back to 1951)  is still ongoing.
  • In the EPPO Global Database, the ‘advanced search’ tool allows you to make full-text searches in the EPPO Reporting Service.
  • A cumulative index  (1967 to current year) can be downloaded as an Excel file.
