APHA extend an open invite to businesses to take part in a seminar detailing what may happen in the even of a no-deal Brexit around Plant and Seed Variety Rights, and trade in seed and propagating material.
The seminar is being held to inform stakeholders how trade in seed and propagating material between the UK and the EU would be affected if the UK leaves the EU in March 2019 without a deal, and how plant breeders would be able to protect their intellectual property.
A scenario in which the UK leaves the EU without agreement (a ‘no deal’ scenario) remains unlikely given the mutual interests of the UK and the EU in securing a negotiated outcome.
APHA Plant Varieties and Seeds team invite you to a presentation explaining how APHA are supporting businesses in the event of a no deal and the subsequent changes in process. These changes are set against the recently published Technical Notice.
