Thanks, Neil - not  seeing anything like that  here - and  not  able  to log  in or  register  either - my  page is  showing
"The seed exchange is not open at present. Only registered seed exchange administrators are able to log in "
Maggi, I am getting the same results as you. Any attempt to log in results in a message that the exchange is currently only open to administrators.

Just live dangerously & ignore this warning ;D  Login as usual then you should see the page Neil shows ;)
You can also download the list in either pdf or xl formats. 
Thanks & well done to those responsible for another fine list.

I have just uploaded a new seed list spreadsheet with an added column identifying those items (just 41) which are cormlets, bulbils and rice grains etc. These of course cannot be sent to members outside of the EU.

the choice of seed is great :o
 the file is very convenient to learn about each plant.
it is interesting to be able to consult the list before the date of the order : a little like a catalog of toys for christmas for kids! thank you very much

Another couple of newbie questions re. the seedex. 

Will I need to give some alternative choices as well as my main 16 preferences and, if so, how many? Is there a specific number needed?

Re. the surplus seed orders, is this by genus or my specific seed list number?

I’m sure it’ll be clear when the system goes live but it’d be really useful to know in advance so I can give it some thought before than.

Apologies if this info is already somewhere on the site but i’ve failed to find anything.

Thanks, Robert

From David Rankin :  "You give 16 alternative choices as well as your first choice in the main distribution.

In the surplus distribution you can give up to 50 specific numbers, with 50 alternatives, plus blocks of numbers. For example, 110-130 (10) requests 10 packets from the number range 110-130."

I wonder if I have to renew my membership to be able to participate in this year's seed exchange or do I have to renew my membership first ?

It will be the last seed exchange I will ever be able to take part in sadly.

Because of stricter EU phytosanitary rules there won't be any import of seeds to EU countries without a phytosanitary certificate ( which I presume will be very costly - if possible to administer by an organisation like SRGC ? )

When the UK leaves the EU on January 31st ( at the latest ) there will be no more seed from English sources.

This seed xenophobia is really sad and I have to thank you for a wonderful and very enriching time being a part of this wonderful club. It has created many happy moments.

Paul don't worry seeds exchange will continue, i don't see anyone sending a 200 species list to the organisation in charge of cites. inapplicable within EEC as it cost at least 60€ for a single page of species listed, each supplement page is charged 25€ (writing very small you can add 25 species /page;D)

I know someone in charge of CITES in my region, he confirmed that only commercial trades will be impacted by the rules and the fact customs lack of officials to assign more tasks to their job.

In my country the Delta plateform isn't even ready to record plant species, no database is yet linked....software developpers teams are already overbooked with the new european simplified customs declarations for the next 5 years.

Customs are reducing their workforce all around EEC, so no worries  ;)

To sell plants, seeds or bulbs within the EU you must check if you need a:

plant passport (you don’t need one to sell plants directly to the public)
supplier document
If you don’t need either of these, you don’t need to follow any other special rules to move plants within the EU.

SRGC don't sell seeds

The current year exchange will continue as normal. What happens after that is not yet known. We will let you know in due course. We are trying to ensure that all members, wherever they live, will be able to contribute to, and order from, the seed exchange, with as little bureaucracy and cost as possible.
