First list of IAS of Union Concern published by European Commission
On 14 July the European Commission published Commission Implementing Regulation 2016/1141, which implements the first list of Invasive Alien Species of Union Concern, comprising 37 species (23 animals and 14 plants). The list will come into force on 3 August 2016. In addition to the general FAQ which the Commission has published on its website, the UK has also produced its own FAQ for UK stakeholders which can be found here.
