Plant Health Alliance

The Plant Health Alliance is a cross-sectoral group of organisations spanning ornamental horticulture, forestry and general land management, it includes trade associations, environmental NGOs and government agencies. The formation of the Alliance was proposed as a result of a plant health conference at Highgrove in February 2018.

The purpose of the Alliance is to promote and enhance plant health and biosecurity measures to protect plant species and associated ecosystems (natural capital) in the United Kingdom and beyond.

To work towards this purpose, members of the Alliance contributed to the drafting and review of the Plant Health Management Standard which was subsequently published in early 2019. The Standard sets out the technical requirements for the Plant Healthy Certification Scheme.

The interests of the Alliance are supported by Plant Healthy Limited which is a registered charity and owner of the Plant Health Management Standard and the Plant Healthy Certification Scheme. Plant Healthy Limited is a registered charity (in England and Wales - 1205937)
