Pest Risk Assessments
The purpose of a pest risk assessment is to estimate the likelihood of P. ramorum infestation. Below are a number of regional pest risk assessments.
- USDA APHIS Pest Risk Analysis: USDA. 2008. Risk Analysis for Phytophthora ramorum Werres, de Cock & Man in’t Veld, Causal Agent of Sudden Oak Death, Ramorum Leaf blight, and Ramorum dieback.
- Forest Service PRA 2003
- Oregon Pest Risk Assessment
- Canadian Pest Risk Assessment
- United Kingdom Pest Risk Analysis
- European Union Risk Analysis
- Norway Pest Risk Assessment
- Canadian Pest Risk Assessment: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has assessed the risk Phytophthora ramorum poses to Canada. The Risk Assessment document is available by contacting the CFIA directly at: Plant Health & Production Division, Canadian Food Inspection Agency, 59 Camelot Drive, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0Y9; Tel: 613/225-2342, Fax:613/228-66011-800/442-2342.

- United Kingdom: Pest Risk Analysis: The November 2007 Datasheet, which replaces the 15 October 2003 PRA for the UK, is a precursor to the production of the EU PRA and can be viewed here.
- European Union – Pest Risk Analysis: The overall objective of the project Risk Analysis for Phytophthora Ramorum (RAPRA) is to produce a European Pest Risk Analysis for Phytophthora ramorum including risk management strategies and contingency plans applicable to the pathogen within the European Union. The Pest Risk Analysis is the key deliverable in this project. The final Pest Risk Assessment from the EU-RAPRA project is here (large file – 6MB – for download).
