The EU and the EEA EFTA States do not have fully harmonised legislation regarding plants. The EEA Agreement contains legislation regarding plant seeds, with the exception of provisions relating to imports and border control. Legislation regarding plant health is not part of the EEA Agreement.

The Working Group on the Food Chain deals with matters concerning seeds.

Seeds are covered by Annex I, Chapter III of the EEA Agreement.
