Description: The history of the regulation of action against Phytophthora ramorum and P. kernoviae in the EU and U.K. is briefly summarised. For the former there are EU controls on the import of host plants, and the internal regime of plant passporting has been extended to cover Rhododendron, Viburnum and Camellia. There are also requirements relating to containment and eradication at infected nurseries. For P. kernoviae the U.K. has taken action through national legislation which includes the introduction of a management zone in the most heavily infected area of Cornwall. Some pilot work on the clearance of Rhododendron has also occurred. In the U.K. funding for the Phytophthora Programme will run out during 2007/08 and a scientific and policy review will take place in order to set the direction of long term policy for both pathogens. This will involve a public consultation later in 2007. Future policy actions are likely o be discussed in the EU Plant Health Standing Committee in 2008.

Keywords: Phytophthora ramorum, Phytophthora kernoviae, European Union, regulation
