Meeting of the Board for Plant Varieties with its applicants 2021

On behalf of the Secretary of the Board for Plant Varieties I send you a ‘Save the Date’ for the meeting of the Board with its applicants. This meeting will take place on Thursday 2 September 2021 from 10.00h – 12.00h. The format of the meeting will be through MS-Teams, or if possible due to the developments of the corona pandemic, physically at Naktuinbouw.


Subjects for discussion

The main subject of the discussion will be the so-called ‘prolongation of registration’ of plant varieties, which the Board will start from 1 January 2022 onwards. Based on a developed module, maintainers can digitally request prolongation of registration for their varieties. In the meeting, this module will be demonstrated.

NB: prolongation of registration is not applicable for varieties of ornamentals.


On Thursday 26 August 2021 at the latest, we will publish the final agenda on the website of the Board for Plant Varieties (
