Numerous technical questionnaires covering a specific botanical taxon are available in English (as well as a few in other languages).
The technical questionnaires marked with an asterisk (*) are those developed and approved in connection with the corresponding CPVO technical protocol. Those technical questionnaires without and asterisk do not have a corresponding CPVO technical protocol, and have been developed according to the existing UPOV guideline. In the absence of either type of technical questionnaire the general CPVO technical questionnaire is available.
Please take note that when filing for a Community plant variety rights application, the use of a CPVO technical questionnaire is mandatory for each of the botanical taxa where one is available within the following list.
The technical questionnaires can be consulted and downloaded from the CPVO website, or upon request, can be transmitted by the Office.
