Help combat Invasive Alien Species: “By 2020, Invasive Alien Species (IAS) and their pathways are identified and prioritised, priority species are controlled or eradicated, and pathways are managed to prevent the introduction and establishment of new IAS.”
As provided for in the Regulation, invasive alien species have been prioritised in a list of invasive alien species of Union concern, currently including 48 species that are subject to common action at Union level (from 2/2/2019 onwards, 49 species). Member States are currently developing measures on priority pathways. EASIN (European Alien Species Information Network, https://easin.jrc.ec.europa.eu/Documentation/Baseline), an information exchange mechanism supporting the implementation of the Regulation has been established, which enables easy access to data on alien species reported in Europe.
