Brussels, 25 February 2022 – In the context of the review of the EU rules on the marketing of plant reproductive material (PRM), the European Commission has launched a public consultation in order to gather the views of different stakeholders on the future EU legislation on the marketing of seeds and other plant reproductive material. The public consultation takes the form of a multiple-choice questionnaire, with the possibility to submit a position paper of up to 2 pages.


ECVC’s responses to the questionnaire can be consulted here.


ECVC’s additional position paper, which includes our demands exchanges of seeds between farmers, can be consulted here.


ECVC would like to emphasize that the format of the consultation (multiple choice questionnaire) is very restrictive, as this type of questionnaire only allows for a choice among the proposed options, without the possibility to qualify the answers or to propose other options.
