Scottish Government consultation on the Code of Practice on Non-Native and Invasive Non-Native Species

The Scottish Government has published a consultation on the Code of Practice on Non-Native and Invasive Non-Native Species.  

This Code provides practical guidance in respect of the release, keeping, sale and notification offences contained in the Wildlife and Natural Environment (Scotland) Bill.  It also contains information on species control agreements and species control orders, and sets out a framework of responsibilities agreed by the key government agencies dealing with invasive non-native species.

The Scottish Government is inviting responses to this consultation paper by 9 June 2011.
