This Reporting on invasive alien plants is maintained by the Secretariat of the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO). Its aim is to share information collected on the Internet on the invasive alien plants.

 

EPPO is an intergovernmental organization created in 1951 which currently has 50 member countries. EPPO is responsible for harmonization and cooperation among the National Plant Protection Organizations (official authorities) of its member countries. EPPO helps its members in their efforts to protect plant health in agriculture, forestry and the uncultivated environment (standard-setting activities and exchange of information).
