New requirements for adjuvants to plant protection products

Copyright © Agrolab A/S

The Swedish Chemicals Agency, Kemikalieinspektionen, has announced that they will be requiring more information about adjuvants in applications for authorization of plant protection products from January 1, 2024.

This will include the complete composition of the adjuvant and proof of its compatibility with the plant protection product.

The use of an adjuvant will in the future be regulated in the conditions of use of every individual plant protection product. The changes will concern both obligatory and recommended adjuvants.

The reason for the expanded requirements is that since March 24, 2023, adjuvants must not contain substances that are listed in Annex III of regulation 1107/2009.

More information about the news can be found on Kemikalieinspektionen’s website.
