NOTSYS provides Member States (MS) competent authorities the necessary features to support the implementation of the requirements laid down in the Regulation 1143/2014 on Invasive Alien Species (IAS).
In specific NOTSYS supports the requirements of the articles 16 (Early detection notifications) and 17 (Rapid eradication at an early stage of invasion) of the Regulation on IAS.
The format of the NOTSYS interface has been designed to facilitate a timely comprehensive notification of detection of IAS of Union concern, and related eradication measures, as well as allowing an effective communication between the EC and MS and amongst MS.
Mandatory information can be further complemented with additional documents and spatial data. After validation and privacy requirements verification, the information will be used for updating the EASIN Catalogue and Geodatabase.
