We do everything we can to prevent organisms harmful to plants and flowers from entering the premises. That’s why we work with plant passports. Together, we can ensure a healthy industry! Phytosanitary issues concern regulations on diseases and pests. We adopt these regulations when importing and exporting products.
In some cases, such as plant passports, these regulations also apply to putting products onto the Dutch market and so to supplying the auction.
A general list of products that need a plant passport when being supplied to the auction can be found at the website from the VBN.
All information regarding plant passports are on the website of the Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority, a department of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation.
