Section 2: Health requirements for stock nurseries intended for the production of all categories of propagating material, and for cutting nurseries of all categories

1.This Section shall apply to stock nurseries intended for the production of all categories of propagating material, and to cutting nurseries of all those categories.
2.The stock nurseries and the cutting nurseries shall, by visual inspection, be found free from the regulated non-quarantine pests (RNQPs) listed in Sections 6 and 7, as regards the genus or species concerned.

The stock nurseries and the cutting nurseries shall be sampled and tested for the RNQPs listed in Section 7, as regards the genus or species concerned. In case of doubts concerning the presence of the RNQPs listed in Sections 6 and 7, as regards the genus or species concerned, the stock nurseries and cutting nurseries shall be sampled and tested.

3.Visual inspection and, where appropriate, sampling and testing of the stock nurseries and cutting nurseries concerned shall be carried out pursuant to Section 8.
4.Sampling and testing, as provided for in point 2, shall take place in the most appropriate period of the year taking into account the climatic conditions and the growing conditions of the vine, and the biology of the RNQPs relevant for that vine.

As regards sampling and testing, Member States shall apply protocols of the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organisation (EPPO), or other protocols which are internationally recognised. Where such protocols do not exist, the relevant protocols established at national level shall be applied. In that case, Member States shall, on request, make available those protocols to the other Member States and to the Commission.

As regards sampling and testing of vines in the stock nurseries intended for the production of initial propagating material, Member States shall apply biological indexing on indicator plants to assess the presence of viruses, viroids, virus-like diseases and phytoplasmas, or other equivalent protocols which are internationally recognised.
