The CTPS Price Schedule presents the fees for applications for registration in the Official Catalogue of Species and Varieties, and for varieties registered or re-registered in the Official Catalogue of Species and Varieties.
Tests carried out for variety registration are subject to the annual payment of different administrative and technical fees by the applicant. After registration, an annual fee must be paid to maintain the variety in the Official French Catalogue. These fees are set out in the CTPS Price Schedule which is updated each year. They are listed by type of examination and by species or species group. The annual update of the CTPS’s prices takes into account changes in regulations and technical protocols, as well as costs incurred for testing, whilst maintaining the principle of mutualisation between “small” and “large” species. These price evolutions help to optimise the testing scheme, and assure the quality and reliability of results needed for registration. The CTPS works with GEVES to promote the attractivity of the Official French Catalogue, both technically and economically, and to promote the use of variety data produced from these tests.
As a public research organisation (public interest group), GEVES is authorised to grant Research Tax Credits (CIR). R&D related expenditures (including multi-criteria DUS and/or VCUS tests), which are eligible to receive CIR credits and are entrusted to GEVES, can be claimed for double their amount in your company’s CIR expenditure.

Consequences of Brexit on the marketing of seeds and other propagating material included in the national registry of the United Kingdom only
In view of the notice sent to breeders by the European Commission on 8 September 2017 (https://ec.europa.eu/food/plant/plant_propagation_material/legislation_en) and the uncertainties following the decision of the United Kingdom to leave the European Union on 29 March 2019, the French Ministry of Agriculture is establishing a procedure for registration in the Official Catalogue of species and varieties of cultivated plants in France (Official French Catalogue) of varieties included in the registry of the United Kingdom only. Breeders will be able to register these varieties in the Official French Catalogue in order to continue marketing in the European Union after 29 March 2019.
The registration procedure is currently being finalised. It will take into account all regulations regarding species (with or without VCUS) and information needs for the sector, while remaining straightforward to implement. When this procedure has been validated by the competent authority, the documents for filing a registration application will be made available on the GEVES website. Applications must be made before 30 June 2018 in order for varieties to be registered in the Official French Catalogue before 29 March 2019.
