Invasive alien species: List of species of Union concern

15-12-2015

According to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), invasive alien species (IAS) are the second most significant threat to biodiversity after habitat loss. They are also capable of causing significant damage to human health and to the economy. The cost of controlling invasive alien species and repairing the harm they do in the EU is estimated at €12 billion annually. To tackle this cross-border issue, an EU Regulation on IAS was adopted in 2014 and entered into force in January ...

According to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), invasive alien species (IAS) are the second most significant threat to biodiversity after habitat loss. They are also capable of causing significant damage to human health and to the economy. The cost of controlling invasive alien species and repairing the harm they do in the EU is estimated at €12 billion annually. To tackle this cross-border issue, an EU Regulation on IAS was adopted in 2014 and entered into force in January 2015. The European Commission had to submit to Member States' representatives a list of 'invasive alien species of Union concern' by January 2016, as an EU wide containment measure. Under the Regulation, the list of IAS of Union concern will contain only species that are scientifically proven to be particularly harmful and that can be addressed in a cost-efficient manner. The compilation of the list is not a one-off exercise, but is intended as an ongoing process. NGOs and the European Parliament have criticised the draft list for being too short and for not including some species which they consider are particularly widespread and harmful to ecosystems.

Invasive Alien Species: Initial Appraisal of the Commission's Impact Assessment

11-02-2014

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying its proposal for a Regulation on the prevention and management of the introduction and spread of invasive alien species (COM (2013) 620 final, which was adopted on 9 September 2013. It analyses whether the principal criteria laid down in the Commission’s own Impact Assessment Guidelines, as well as additional factors identified by the Parliament in its Impact ...

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying its proposal for a Regulation on the prevention and management of the introduction and spread of invasive alien species (COM (2013) 620 final, which was adopted on 9 September 2013. It analyses whether the principal criteria laid down in the Commission’s own Impact Assessment Guidelines, as well as additional factors identified by the Parliament in its Impact Assessment Handbook, appear to be met by the IA. It does not attempt to deal with the substance of the proposal. It is drafted for informational and background purposes to assist the relevant parliamentary committee and Members more widely in their work.

This report summarises the presentations and discussions during the Workshop on Invasive Alien Species, held on 17 December 2013. The aim of the workshop was to allow an exchange of views on the new proposal for a regulation on the prevention and management of the introduction and spread of invasive alien species between MEPs, the European Commission, stakeholders, NGOs, public administration and academia. There is general agreement that the new proposal is timely and a major step forward in dealing with the negative consequences invasive alien species have for the environment, ecosystem services, public health and the economy in Europe. Different views exist on how to best achieve the aims of the proposed regulation.

Tackling invasive alien species in Europe

28-11-2013

Some non-native animals, plants and micro-organisms can pose a serious threat to European flora and fauna, disrupt fragile ecosystems and also transmit diseases to people, decimate crops and damage infrastructure. Environmentalists and politicians have called for action to address this ecological, economic and social threat. In September 2013, the European Commission proposed a harmonised approach. Under the proposal there would be a ban on the import, sale, growing, use or release of selected species ...
