Fertilising products; Fertilizers (ICS 65.080)
Draft Commission Delegated Regulation amending Annexes II, III and IV to Regulation (EU) 2019/1009 of the European Parliament and of the Council for the purpose of adding recovered high purity materials as a component material category in EU fertilising products (7 page(s), in English; 8 page(s), in English)
The draft Delegated Regulation will allow the use of salts of ammonia, salts of sulphate, elemental sulphur, calcium carbonate or calcium oxide of a high purity of 95% in EU fertilising products. All these materials have an important market demand and have proven their high agronomic value during a long history of use in the field.
The draft Delegated Regulation details the production processes and recovery operations out of which these materials may be obtained.
Maximum limit-values for relevant substances of concern are also included.
As an additional safety measure, an extensive REACH registration will also apply to high purity materials and the conformity assessment of products containing such materials will require a quality assurance system and the involvement of a third party (notified body).
