For years, the industry and the regulatory authorities have been working in a new proposal for regulating crop protection products. The notification G/SPS/N/CRI/172 has been published in front of the WTO on the 11th of July concerning the Regulation RTCR 484:2016 “Regulation on Registration, Use and Control of Formulated Synthetic Pesticides, Technical Grade Active Ingredient, Adjuvants and Related Substances of Agricultural Use.”

The deadline for comments is the 26th of July.

The sector expects the new regulation to enter into force in 2017.
