EPPO Data Services (EDS) allow you to extract data without using a graphical interface (i.e. machine to machine) from the EPPO coding system, such as downloading the EPPO Codes for incorporation into your own IT systems, or running particular queries directly in the database.

EDS is mainly addressed to IT specialists, although quick online tools can be used by anyone to get codes/names directly from the database without any programing skills.
