Draft Law of Ukraine "On Placing of Plant Protection Products and Agrochemicals on the Market"; (21 page(s), in Ukrainian)

The draft Law aims to establish the procedures for placing of plant protection products and agrochemicals on the market in accordance with the EU regulations in force. Its purpose is to define the terminology and basic concepts on the approval of active substances, antidotes and synergists contained in the preparative forms of plant protection products, to define unacceptable coformulants that cannot be contained in plant protection products, to harmonize the procedures for placing on the market of agrochemicals and to determine the procedure for handling hazardous substances.

The draft Order is developed to improve the state regulation in the sphere of pesticides and agrochemicals taking into account the Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 October 2009 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market and repealing Council Directives 79/117/EEC and 91/414/EEC, Regulation (EU) 2019/1009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 June 2019 laying down rules on the making available on the market of EU fertilising products and amending Regulations (EC) No 1069/2009 and (EC) No 1107/2009 and repealing Regulation (EC) No 2003/2003.

It is established that all existing registrations of pesticides and agrochemicals in accordance with the Law of Ukraine "On Pesticides and Agrochemicals", which will be valid as of the date of entry into force of this Law, shall remain valid until their completion without the need for approval of the active substance.

The current Law of Ukraine "On Pesticides and Agrochemicals" will become invalid from the date of entry into force of this Law.

The draft Law is also notified in accordance with the provisions of the Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures.
