The Swiss federal plant protection regulation contains a list of pathogens and pests („quarantine organisms”). Since they are not present in Europe, or occur only in limited areas, official measures were proscribed in order to prevent their spread. An important element is the phytosanitary passport, which certifies that vegetative plant material produced in nurseries has been officially controlled for quarantine organisms. Another fundamental element is mandatory notification, which requires reporting of any occurrence of these quarantine organisms.
