What

Central to this website is a plant health management standard that sets out practical requirements and guidance for horticulture businesses.

How

Create an online account and self-assess your business against the requirements of the standard.

Why

To help protect your business and your customers against the potential losses and disruption caused by plant pests and diseases.

Self Assessment

Once you have created an account, complete a short set of questions that are based on the requirements of the plant health standard. Guidance is provided which is aimed to help businesses understand threats, fulfil their statutory obligations and improve general plant health management practices. A score and a report will be provided to help businesses improve over time and become ready for full compliance.

Full Compliance

Coming soon - in summer 2019 we aim to launch the full plant health assurance scheme. This will enable horticulture businesses to achieve a Plant Healthy assurance certificate that demonstrates that the business has been independently audited by a certification body. This certificate will demonstrate to suppliers and buyers that plant health management is integral to a business's operations.
