Plant passport

The Swiss-EU plant passport system is a preventive risk management measure designed to make trade in plants and seeds safer, thus providing better protection against particularly dangerous pests and diseases. The plant passport is an official attestation for the supply (commercial or non-commercial) of regulated plant goods within Switzerland and for exchanges with the EU. It certifies that the goods meet plant health requirements and are subject to regular official controls.

The functions of the plant passport:

  • certifying to the recipient that the plant material has been produced under officially controlled conditions and is free from regulated plant diseases and pests,
  • ensuring traceability.
