Plant varieties and seeds framework

Back to Common Frameworks

This framework sets out how the UK government and devolved governments propose to work together on:

  • the intellectual property rights of plant breeders
  • plant variety registration
  • setting standards for marketing and certification of seed (and other plant propagating material) and ensuring that these standards are upheld
25 March 2022The Northern Ireland Committee for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs published its position paper on the framework.
4 February 2022The Rural Affairs, Islands and Natural Environment Committee received the framework for scrutiny.
3 February 2022The provisional framework was published.
