In the case where a derogation is allowed to produce pre-basic material in the field under non-insect proof conditions, pursuant to Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2017/925(1), the following requirements shall apply concerning Cryphonectria parasitica (Murrill) Barr:

(i)

propagating material and fruit plants of the pre-basic category shall be produced in areas known to be free from Cryphonectria parasitica (Murrill) Barr; or

(ii)

no symptoms of Cryphonectria parasitica (Murrill) Barr are observed at the site of production on propagating material and fruit plants of the pre-basic category since the beginning of the last complete cycle of vegetation.

(c) Basic category
Requirements with regard to the production site, place of production or area
(i)

propagating material and fruit plants of the basic category shall be produced in areas known to be free from Cryphonectria parasitica (Murrill) Barr ; or
