The purpose of the S3 is to provide applicants with the list of examination offices which are currently entrusted to carry out the DUS technical examinations on behalf of the CPVO according to the species.

NOTE: a genus entrustment does not stand for all species of the genus, but for:

  • complex hybrids involving more than two species of that genus. (example: (Salix schwerinii E. L. Wolf x S. viminalis L.) x (Salix miyabeana Seemen × S. viminalis L.) → Salix L.
