Find additional information in attached files:



SI Rules (Art. 16) have further requirements to the general provisions mentioned in the EU Regulation (Annex I A, 4); that the collection areas are accurately established, and inspection in accordance with these rules can be carried out in the designated areas. SI Rules also specify the authority to agree that the collection does not affect the stability of the natural habitat etc.; namely the Institute for Protection of Natural and Cultural heritage.


Provisions for the collection of plants in natural areas in SI Rules 2003 are more specific than in the EU Regulation 2092/91 regarding the identification and inspection of the area of collection and it is also specifying the authority to agree on harmlessness of the collection for natural habitat/species.


Additional specifications should enable a better control of collection in natural areas and prevent damage to nature.
