As part of the QQR, stakeholders are provided with the opportunity to propose changes to
the species on the schedules. This Information Pack has been produced for the 7th QQR
(QQR 7). It is important to note that this QQR differs from previous ones. The Information
Pack explains the new selection criteria, provides a timetable, and explains the process to be
used by stakeholders. Contact details of the QQR Inter-agency Group who are managing
QQR 7, are listed in Section 5.
In addition, the Information Pack provides details of how to complete the online survey
through which stakeholders propose new species for inclusion on, or removal of existing
species from Schedules 5 and 8, or propose a change to how species are protected on the
schedules. It is absolutely essential that clear evidence is provided for each proposal.
