Trade in Rhodiola rosea - risk for survival in the wild


Report no: Non-detriment finding (NDF)

Published: 21.04.2023

Key message:

In Norway, given the current state of the natural population and the level of trade of Rhodiola rosea (rose root), VKM says export is not harmful to the species' continued survival in the wild.

The risk assessment should be updated if the level of harvesting and/or export increases in the future. Thus concludes the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food and Environment (VKM).

The assignment was carried out on behalf of the Norwegian Environment Agency, which is the management authority for the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in Norway.

VKM is the scientific authority for CITES in Norway and prepares NDF (non-detriment finding) reports in accordance with the methodology published by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and CITES.
