According to the instructions in the “Guidelines for applicants for EU founding of Phytosanitary programmes for pests”, 24 EU Member States submitted a phytosanitary programme for 2021 and 2022. These programmes were technically and financially assessed against the criteria stemming from the provisions of the relevant Commission Implementing Decision (2021)3046.

The contribution allocated to the 24 EU countries for the implementation of the 2021 and 2022 programme (€20 million each) is within the total maximum annual contribution defined for 2021 and 2022.
