Sanction against Russia and Belarus

14 september 2022

Following up on the sanction imposed by the European Union, the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food quality has imposed a sanction to Russia and Belarus.


The Ministry has advised the Board for plantvarieties to follow National policy and to implement the sanction. The Board for plantvarieties has decided to follow the advice of the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food quality and will no longer accept requests of take over DUS reports from Russia and Belarus during the period that the sanction is in force. Therefore we suspend the cooperation.


You can find more information regarding the sanction on the website of the ministry.
