Original consultation

We want your views on the joint GB plant biosecurity strategy.

Consultation description

The consultation proposes:

  • A new vision for plant biosecurity in GB for the next 5 years
  • 4 outcomes, each with a proposed set of actions to help us achieve bio-security in GB:
    • a world-class biosecurity regime
    • a society that values healthy plants
    • a biosecure plant supply chain
    • an enhanced technical capability 

Your responses will help inform the new GB Plant Biosecurity Strategy. This is to be published in 2022.

A parallel consultation is taking place, which is a more detailed technical consultation. It will consult on additional biosecurity measures for tree species posing a particular risk of pest introduction through imports.
