The regulatory landscape is complex for nutrition products (fertilisers, biostimulants and growing media) and we are facing a great period of change in Europe. The identification of the correct European or local Regulation to follow depending upon the composition, mode of action or claim can be challenging.
Some of the key regulations include:
- Regulation (EC) No 2019/1009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 05/06/2019 relating to fertilisers registration (replacing Regulation (EC) No. 2003/2003)
- Mandatory local standards and decrees, different in all European Member States.
Add to this the multiple guidance documents and related legislation and it is easy to understand why many clients ask for our support.
We ensure that we keep up to date on forthcoming changes in regulations and guidance documents related to Regulation (EC) 2019/1009 but also local regulations, so that we can provide up to date advice at all times. We also review the emerging conclusions on evaluations as they are completed in the different Member States, so that we are aware of any emerging trends relating to the acceptability of reasoned cases etc. This ensures that we are well placed to act on your behalf.
Please do contact us if you need our support or if you would like to find out more.
