With the deepening of trade cooperation between China and Spain, the agrichemical enterprises in both countries have been working increasingly close in the recent years. However, when entering the each other's markets, related market participants have still to face compliance challenges.
In China, the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) has spent considerable effort revising its most relevant regulations to improve the quality and safety of agricultural products. 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 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 stricter and more complicated.
As one of the most developed economies, the EU has also issued a very strict and complex regulatory system to manage the placing of different kinds of agro-inputs such as Plant Protection Products (PPP), plant nutritional products (PNP) as well as bio-stimulants on its market. Meeting regulatory compliance requirements and entering the EU market is thus a challenge to most agro-inputs related companies. Not only does it mean high costs and a big time investment, it also requires related companies to have a strong technical team to fulfil data requirements.
In order to help companies in the industry have a clear understanding of pesticides and fertilizer registration in China and EU, REACH24H Consulting Group will hold a free workshop to offer an updated and detailed interpretation of changes on related regulations, and provide key elements to determine the tactical and effective strategic implementation for the registration of pesticides and fertilizers in China and EU.
REACH24H and the Association of Pesticide Industry, Shandong Province (APIS) in China will jointly invite more than 20 Chinese agrochemical companies to attend the workshop, so as to promote effective exchanges and cooperation between Chinese and Spanish enterprises.
