Dear signatories,

The petition is extended until January 25th, 2022. What a relief that so many people are supporting with signatures and comments the demand that the EU Commission exempts seed savers from the registration obligation under the Plant Health Regulation.

In the meantime, the EU Commission was informed regarding the ongoing petition. The letter to the EU Commission, apart from explaining the demand, is again suggesting a meeting.
