Spanish co-operate on plant health inspections:

The national government of Spain and the autonomous region of the Canaries have agreed to co-operate on plant health inspections. The move is aimed at speeding up inspections at ports in the Canary Islands. The authorities are to regulate the flow of documents and information between the regional and national governments. They are also to define control and traceability procedures. The authorities are concerned about the entry of possible diseases and the effect on the islands' vegetation, some 15% of which is unique due to the islands' isolation from other lands. New controls on the arrival of produce will be stronger and include those from the Spanish mainland. There are seven entry points in the Canaries by sea and another seven by land.
