Weight determination of solid animal fertilisers (Article I(F)); admission of six residues that can be traded as fertiliser, one of which can also be used for the production of fertilisers (Article I(T)); accreditation programme for the sampling of solid animal fertilisers (Article I(U)); fixed mineral content for liquid manure and filtrate after manure separation from cattle and pigs, and for slurry from rabbits (Article I(V)); yield and nitrogen and phosphate content of wheat, peas, barley and rye (Article I(W))
Regulation of the Minister of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality of [pm date], no WJZ / 18090520 amending the Implementation Regulation for Fertilisers Act in connection with several modifications of the provisions concerning weighing, independent sampling, the transport certificate for animal fertilisers, the addition of several substances in Annex Aa and on the adjustment of various fixed amounts and on the use of the base card ON.
A number of additional requirements are laid down for the determination of the weight of solid animal manure (Article I(F)). A cargo of manure must be weighed immediately after the start of the transport and the weight of the empty vehicle must henceforth always be determined before the transport. During transport, the carrier must have proof of weighing of both the cargo and the empty vehicle, and this proof must include a number of specified data. The carrier must store the proofs of weighing in its administration for a period of five years.
It is permitted to trade six residues as fertiliser. One of these residues may also be used for the production of fertilisers. (Article I(T))
In the accreditation programme for the sampling of solid animal fertilisers (Article I(U)), a new sampling method is added for sampling in the body of a loaded vehicle and for sampling big bags. Further rules are laid down regarding the number of samples required from the body of a loaded vehicle or a cargo of big bags and the distribution of the samples across the cargo. In addition, the formal transfer of the sample to the laboratory is defined in more detail and the quality assurance is amended on several points.
The fixed mineral levels for liquid manure and filtrate after manure separation in the animal species cattle and pigs are split (Article I(V)). There are new, separate fixed mineral contents determined for liquid manure and for filtrate after manure separation. The fixed mineral content for slurry from rabbits is corrected on one point.
Corrections have been made in the values for yield and nitrogen and phosphate content of wheat, peas, barley and rye (Article I(W)).
