An application for a Plant Breeders’ Right is submitted, together with a completed Technical Questionnaire, and proof of right to apply. The Technical Questionnaire provides a detailed description of the new characteristics of the variety. Plant material must also be made available.

A Plant Breeders Right will be granted once the authorities are satisfied that the variety complies with the requirements for a Plant Breeders’ Right and that the plant material is as described in the Technical Questionnaire. The examination of slow-growing plants, such as trees, may take a number of years.
