The conditions for making fertilisers available on the internal market are partially harmonised through Regulation (EC) No. 2003/2003 (the Fertilisers Regulation) of the

European Parliament and of the Council. This Regulation almost exclusively covers inorganic/mineral fertilisers.

With increased use of recycled or organic nutrients for fertilising purposes a new Regulation (EC) No. 1107/2009 was accepted in June 2019 and will apply from 16 July 2022.

The new Regulation (EU) No. 2019/1009 repeals the existing fertilisers Regulation and harmonises requirements and sets limits on a range of contaminants in mineral fertilisers, encouraging a move toward more environmentally - friendly agriculture. It includes organic fertilisers, soil improvers, agronomic additives, plant biostimulants designated also as ‘EU fertilising product’ and being CE marked.

Our team provides regulatory support with preparation and submission packages, classification and labelling of fertilisers, soil improving products and plant stimulating products at national level before placing on the market.
