ASTA: Notification of import of plants and plant products in the TRACES NT system

As of 14 December 2019 the new European legislation on protective measures against organisms harmful to plants (2016/2031/EU)[1] and the legislation on official controls to perform on the introduction of plants into the European Union  (2017/625/EU)[2] will apply.

The operator must register by creating an EU-Login and identify itself as “operator”. In the case of any problem or questions, please consult the documentation at the following link:
