Advisory councils

In the field of plant protection, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry has established two advisory councils. The council on plant protection has been established under the Act on Protecting Plant Health and the council on plant protection products under the Act on Plant Protection Products.

The tasks of the councils include monitoring developments in the field, providing statements, and submitting proposals and initiatives on relevant issues. The councils consist of members representing various stakeholders in the field of plant protection, including research institutes, advisory organisations, enterprises, producers and the administration.
