April 2016 - EU Regulation 1143/2014 on Invasive Alien Species


The Regulation 1143/2014 on invasive alien species entered into force on 1 January 2015. This Regulation seeks to address the problem of invasive alien species in a comprehensive manner so as to protect native biodiversity and ecosystem services, as well as to minimize and mitigate the human health or economic impacts that these species can have.

The Regulation foresees three types of interventions; prevention, early detection and rapid eradication, and management.

A list of invasive alien species of Union concern will be drawn up and managed with Member States using risk assessments and scientific evidence. The risk assessments are available here.
