Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which extend to Scotland only, amend the Marketing of Fruit Plant Material Regulations 1995, which implement Council Directive 92/34/EEC and Commission Directives 93/48/EEC, 93/64/EEC and 93/79/EEC on the marketing of fruit plant propagating material and fruit plants intended for fruit production within the European Community.

These Regulations give effect to Commission Directive 2003/111/EC (O.J. No. L 311, 27.11.03, p.12) amending Annex II to Directive 92/34/EC (O.J. No. L157, 10.6.92, p.10). Annex II to Directive 92/34/EEC lists the genera and species covered by the provisions laid down in the Directive.

Regulation 2 replaces Schedule 1 to the Marketing of Fruit Plant Material Regulations 1995 with a new Schedule 1 specifying the genera and species to which those Regulations apply.

The following have now been added to the Annex: Castanea sativa Mill., Ficus carica L., Fortunella Swingle., Poncirus Raf. and Vaccinium L. In addition, Citrus L., Fragaria L., Pyrus L., Ribes L., Rubus L. have replaced the previous entries for these species.
