Marketing of Seeds and Plant Propagating Material (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (S.I. No. 131 of 2019).

Type of law

These Regulations address failures of retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies arising from the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union. They make amendments to the Seed Marketing Regulations 2011 to include references to EEA states and Switzerland where appropriate. They also make amendments to other secondary legislation consequential on the United Kingdom s withdrawal from the European Union. The changes are to legislation regulating the marketing of agricultural seed, forestry and vegetative propagating material.
Some parts of these Regulations apply to England only. No person may market in England plant material produced in a member State unless plant such material (a) is of a variety that may be marketed under regulation 7 or has been registered as a variety by the responsible authority in a member State in accordance with Article 4 of Directive 2014/97/EU; (b) has been produced in compliance with the requirements set out in Directives 2008/90/EC, 2014/98/EU and 2014/96/EU; and (c) has been imported into England before the end of the period of two years beginning with the day after the day on which exit day falls. .
