Amendment of Annex 1 to the Ordinance on phytosanitary products (OPPh)

The Ordinance on phytosanitary products (RS 916.161, OPPh) was notified in document G/SPS/N/CHE/82 of 19 December 2019. The OPPh establishes conditions for the placing on the market of phytosanitary products. Annex 1 to the OPPh contains a list of active substances that may be used as phytosanitary products in Switzerland. A new substance is included in this Annex if, once the application accompanying the request has been examined, it meets the conditions established in Article 5. The following amendment of the OPPh includes three new substances, of which two are micro-organisms, into the Annex 1. Furthermore there are formal adjustments on several substances from Annex 1, most notably new classifications of substances already included in Annex 1 as either substances with a low risk profile or substances which are candidates for substitution. These formal adjustments are in alignement with EU decisions and regulations. Details are stipulated in the attached draft document.
