Minor use

Published 01.06.2015     Modified 25.11.2019

An authorisation for minor use allows an already authorised plant protection product to be applied for in additional uses, provided that these uses are minor in nature. The legal basis for mutual recognition is article 51 in the plant protection products Regulation (EC) No. 1107/2009.

It is also possible to apply for mutual recognition of a minor use authorisation from another Member State within the Northern zone, as long as the product is authorised for a crop or a pest that is regarded as minor also in Norway.
