Looks like there are some (helpful) loopholes, in the form of a
supplementary regulation for a broad range of purposes; in our case,
"education and breeding" might enable small growers and gardeners a

See what you make of this: *"COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) …/...of
14.3.2019supplementing Regulation (EU) 2016/2031 of the European Parliament
and of theCouncil on protective measures against pests of plants,
authorising Member States toprovide for temporary derogations in view of
official testing, scientific or educationalpurposes, trials, varietal
selections, or breeding"
"The Regulation concerns any person, including competent authorities,
academic and research institutions or professional operators, that carries
out activities related to official testing, scientific or educational
purposes, trials, varietal selection or breeding, that involves the
introduction into, the movement within, holding, multiplication or use in
the Union and protected zone thereof, of any specified material as
specified before."*

If I find direct emails for the country contacts you've listed I'll post
them next.
