Regulated non-quarantine pest Project

An EU funded project for the benefit of the whole EPPO region

NAME OF THE ORGANISM: None (Statement in several Annexes: Annex III point (7) Health and Resistance: 'Trees in stands must in general be free from attacks by damaging organisms'; Annex VII Part C points (1) and (2) and Part E point (1)) (NULL6)


Name as submitted in the project specification (if different to the preferred name):

Pest category:

1- Identity of the pest/Level of taxonomic listing:

Is the organism clearly a single taxonomic entity and can it be adequately distinguished from other entities of the same rank?

Is the pest defined at the species level or lower?:

Can listing of the pest at a taxonomic level higher than species be supported by scientific reasons or can species be identified within the taxonomic rank which are the (main) pests of concern?
  • No: Forest reproductive material sector
Is it justified that the pest is listed at a taxonomic rank below species level?
Not relevant

  • Not candidate: Forest reproductive material sector
Justification (if necessary):
In the Questionnaire, AT, PT and ENA considered that there was a need to list pests at the species level for this specific sector. Other countries also proposed to regulate specific pest/host combinations in Q3 (SI) or Q1.2 (DE, EFNA, ENA, ES, FR, GB, PT, SE, SI). However this is out of the scope of the RNQP project as no particular pest is currently listed.
