The report was discussed in the Plant Health section of the European Commission’s Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed in November. After consideration by the Commission and Member States, the Committee will advise on whether enough has been done to justify an early review of the EU legislation which imposes the ban. We are pressing for an early decision, to provide clarity in advance of the next mango import season.
