Various TQs harmonised

News publication date: 07 July 2021

The TQs of lettuce, onion, tomato, tomato root, carrot, spinach, cucumber/pickle, melon, zucchini, watermelon, corn and hemp are harmonised with those of the CPVO. The updated TQs will apply from 1 July 2021.

Why are we harmonizing the TQs?

Together with CPVO, colleagues in the European Union and industry, we have recently been working on harmonising the Technical Questionnaires (TQs). This is to bring the TQs more into line. This is especially important for online registration via CPVO and UPOV PRISMA.

What's been modified?

Chapters 5 and 7 are finished. The other chapters will follow.

The TQs of lettuce, onion, tomato, tomato rootstock, carrot, spinach, cucumber/pickle, melon, zucchini, watermelon, corn and hemp are ready. The modified TQs for these crops have entered into force at cpvo on 1 July.

We now work with one version control for the Board for Plant Varieties Website. This will be a fillable PDF as you will also find it in the online login module.

Where can you find the current versions?

The TQs are also adjusted on the website of the Board for Plant Varieties. Keep an eye on the website and the online login module for the latest versions.
