EU Invasive Alien Species Regulation (important)
The draft legislation for the EU Invasive Alien Species Regulation has just gone live on the EUROPA website:
Environment: New EU Action to protect biodiversity against problematic invasive species
The proposals need to be studied in great detail but at first glance this is the bit I donít much likeÖ..!!
Ban on invasive alien species of Union concern
1. Species included on the list referred to in Article 4(1) shall not be intentionally:
(a) brought into or transited through the Union territory;
(b) permitted to reproduce;
(c) transported, except for the transportation of species to facilities for eradication;
(d) placed on the market;
(e) used or exchanged;
(f) kept or grown, including in contained holding;
