Due to widespread occurrence of Clavibacter sepedonicus bacterium

Additional certificate required for sale of Polish potatoes to EU countries

Very soon, table potatoes of Polish origin can only be imported by other countries of the European Union if there is a certificate of absence of Clavibacter sepedonicus. This bacterium causes ring rot of potatoes. This will mean that the importation of table potatoes from Poland is subject to stricter regulations than from other EU countries, is due to the widespread occurrence of Clavibacter sepedonicus in Poland. There, ring rot is most common in table potato samples, accounting for 4,4% of all potatoes tested. Meanwhile, in the EU, this figure averages 2,8%.

The EU safety requirements stipulate that Polish table potatoes can be imported for sale to other EU countries only if they are accompanied by the specified certificate and if the Polish Plant Protection Service has notified the similar office of the respective country in advance about the delivery of the shipment.
