At the beginning of July 2020, ANSES published a new version of the guide for the evaluation of registration dossiers for fertilisers, adjuvants for fertilisers and growing media. This version cancels and replaces the previous version published in April 2020. The main changes made to the guide concern:
- Microbiological criteria in the safety assessment of products. Version 2 of the guide clarifies that these criteria are to be evaluated before and after storage.
- the nomenclature of the technical dossier in Annex 2.
Moreover, following a discussion with ANSES about new documents for registration of fertilisers, adjuvants for fertilisers and growing media, it appears that the characterisation analysis is still required for registration applications made by mutual recognition, even if this is not explicitly listed in the decree of April 1, 2020 fixing the composition of registration dossiers for fertilisers, adjuvants for fertilisers and growing media.
