EPPO Platform on PRAs

Purpose

This platform was launched in September 2018. It aims to share work done on the evaluation of pest risk. It includes national Pest Risk Analyses (PRAs) produced by EPPO countries (incl. quick scans, commodities PRAs) on all pests including invasive plants in different languages. Users 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.
