A draft is being reviewed by the committee.


This document provides guidelines for the characterization of native species and products based on native species, which have been collected, harvested and/or processed, to enable the establishment of minimum quality and safety requirements considering sustainable management of biodiversity. A special focus is on biodiversity protection along all steps of the value chain of those products.

Characterization of native species and products allows to determine requirements that have not been considered, providing this information to interested parties, including farmers, producers, exporters, importers and authorities, as well as consumers and users.

This document applies to native species and products based on native species from plants, algae and fungi collected or harvested. This document does not apply to native animal species and wood products.
