EPPO Platform on PRAs

Background

A survey conducted by EPPO showed that many Pest Risk Analyses are produced at the national level and that providing a database to present them would be useful for EPPO countries, to increase awareness on new pests and share knowledge.

The beta version of this database was tested by users in early 2018 and a subsequent version was made publicly available in September 2018.

Purpose

This platform aims to share information on activities on evaluation of pest risk in the EPPO region. It includes national PRAs produced by EPPO countries (e.g. Express PRAs, quick scans, interception PRAs, commodities PRAs) on all pests including invasive plants in any language. Countries may also share draft PRAs, or plans for future PRAs.

Please note that only part of the information is public and more information is available to registered users (e.g. draft PRAs, PRAs from non-EPPO countries).

EPPO is not responsible for the content and conclusions of the PRAs prepared by other entities and presented in this platform.
