Nature: Invasive species law comes into force

The Regulation 1143/2014 on invasive alien species entered into force on 1st January 2015. The Regulation seeks to address the problem of invasive alien species to protect native biodiversity and ecosystem services and 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 37 invasive alien species of Union concern will be finalised in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, the European Parliament is concerned by the absence of the most problematic species in its view and the inclusion of other less problematic species.  The list is identical to that proposed by the European Commission in October. Species like grey squirrels, Asian hornet are included whilst American mink and Japanese knotweed are excluded for the time being.
