Consultation description

We want to know what you think about our proposals to introduce penalties to enforce the EU regulation on invasive non-native species. These penalties will apply to offences in England and Wales.

The EU Invasive Alien Species Regulation applies restrictions on invasive non-native species of most concern in Europe, including a ban on keeping and selling.
