Plant health checks

Food safety

In order to prevent any risk to human food and animal feed and to guarantee healthy and good quality crops, the EU places great emphasis on plant and crop protection. There are therefore checks on the movement of plants within the EU or from third countries in order to combat the emergence and spread of harmful organisms. The EU also ensures that plant health products are not harmful to health or the environment, specifically through an authorisation system and maximum residue limits in plants.
