Dear members,
I am happy to inform you that today the European Parliament (AGRI Committee) voted on the Strategic Plans in which were tableted EIHA Amendments.
EIHA  asked to increase the THC level in the seeds allowed for planting in EU from 0,2% to 0,3%.
However regulation need few more steps to be fully adopted:
Vote in the Plenary section of the EP (Strasbourg). September?
Vote of the Council based on the EP text as voted today.
Entry into force, the latest, on 01/01/2021
Even if it is not reality yet, I’d say that today’s vote is a major step forward for the entire EU hemp sector.
Enclosed the Press Release EIHA published on this issue.
