- Plant passport
What must the plant passport look like?
A fixed format was defined with the following elements:
- in the upper left corner: the EU flag (Color or black and white)
- in the upper right corner: the word „Plant Passport“
- „A“ + botanical name
- „B“ + ISO code of the Member State, Hyphen, phytosanitary Registration number (9 digits)
- „C“ + traceability code
- „D“ + ISO code country of origin / production.
Shape and size may vary, so you can choose the size that suits your pot best. The areas with the letters A, B, C and D must be recognizable. The prerequisite is that the plant pass is visible to the naked eye and is visible at a glance.
