|Red List Category & Criteria:||Vulnerable B2ab(iii,v) (Regional assessment) ver 3.1|
|Reviewer(s):||Fay, M. & Bilz, M.|
European regional assessment: Vulnerable (VU)
EU 27 regional assessment: Vulnerable (VU)
Epipactis nordeniorum is extremely rare and extremely local where it occurs. The distribution area of the species is very fragmented with few locations. The area of occupancy is below 2,000 km² and an ongoing decline of the populations is suspected. Main threats to the species are changes in forest management and logging, mining, and construction of forest roads. Therefore, Epipactis nordeniorum is assessed as Vulnerable.

|Use and Trade:||
There are no known uses.
Epipactis nordeniorum is threatened by the ongoing exploitation of its habitats due to destruction of forests, deforestation, clearing of old trees, construction of forests roads, drainage, tourism, and mining. It is furthermore affected by grazing by wild animals and recreational activities. (Delforge 1995).
