Export-related non-tariff measure, nes

The Agriculture Ministry regulation 15/2017 introduces export restrictions for seeds. The previous 2012 regulation (cf. Related state acts) contained only import and not export restrictions.

According to article 39 of the regulation, exports of seeds will only be authorised if:

  • "a. the demand for seeds within the Country has been satisfied;
  • b. the seed production is specifically intended for marketing purposes abroad;
  • c. to assure the sustainability of genetic resources;
  • d. for the purposes of competition/exhibition/promotion; and
  • e. not harm the national interest." (own translation)

The regulation came into force on 18 May 2017.
