Current EU rules do not allow imports of cereal seed and oil and fibre plant seed from Bolivia, as the EU does not recognise the equivalence of Bolivia’s seed certification system.
At Bolivia’s request, the Commission analysed and inspected its seed certification system and concluded that it offers the same assurances as the EU system. Therefore, the EU can recognise Bolivia’s seed certification system as equivalent to its own and can open the EU market to these types of seed from Bolivia.
