Agrochemicals - Plant Protection Products and Active Substances

We have more than 25 years of experience in the regulatory affairs of agrochemicals and biopesticides.

Active substances, basic substances, safeners and synergists must be approved on the EU level. Plant protection products and biopesticides are authorized at the national level before being placed on the market. The regulatory framework is set by Regulation (EC) No. 1107/2009 with data requirements specified by Commission Regulations (EU) No. 283/2013 (active substances) and No. 284/2013 (products).
