Background

In order to improve the quality and safety of agricultural products, the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) of China has spent considerable effort revising its most relevant regulations. This revision process led to the new Regulation on Pesticide Administration (RPA) and its Implementation Rules, which took effect in 2017. The new RPA and its implementation rules have significantly changed the registration process and labeling requirements of pesticides, enhancing the management of highly toxic pesticides, including increased fines and blacklisting. Meanwhile, the Management Measures of Fertilizer Registration also underwent significant revisions at the end of 2017. Temporary registrations were removed, and fertilizer samples are now required for re-testing in designated laboratories to ensure quality.

All these latest changes have made the regulatory compliance process of pesticides and fertilizers in China much more strict and complicated. To help navigate through this new landscape, this free workshop will offer an updated and detailed interpretation of changes on China’s regulation on pesticide and fertilizer administration, and provide professionals in the field with key elements to determine a tactical and effective strategy implementation for the registration of pesticides and fertilizers in China.
