The Plant Health (Scotland) Amendment (No.2) Order 2018
Commencement: 17th November 2018
Amends: The Plant Health (Scotland) Order 2005
This Order implements Commission Implementing Decision 2018/490 repealing Decision 2007/365/EC on emergency measures to prevent the introduction into and spread within the Community of Rhynchophorus ferrugineus (Olivier). Also known as Red Palm weevil.
The 2007 Decision introduced emergency measures against the spread Red Palm weevil, and only allowed suspect plants to be imported/moved if specific requirements were met. The emergency measures did not work and Red Palm weevil is widespread in the EU. As a result the 2007 decision has been revoked by the 2018 Decision.
References to the 2007 Decision are removed from The Plant Health (Scotland) Order 2005.
