Approval plant protection products

Published 01.06.2015     Modified 03.12.2019

Plant protection products are chemical or biological substances used to protect plants and plant products against fungi, pests and competing plants. A plant protection product contains one or more active substances in addition to other ingredients such as co-formulants.

Before you can sell a plant protection product on the Norwegian market it has to be assessed and approved by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority (Mattilsynet). The Norwegian Food Safety Authority will assess possible risks for the environment and our health. We also assess whether the product is effective for the applied use. The plant protection product must comply with the criteria for health and environment specified in uniform principles.

In Norway, plant protection products are regulated by the Norwegian regulation with the implemented European Parliament and Council Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009.
