Fertiliser Product Act

Key Information
Description: 
National fertiliser legislation ensures that all fertiliser products placed on the market in Finland are safe, of high quality, and suitable for plant production. This legislation also aims to promote the utilisation of by-products suitable for use as fertilisers, provided that they have a proven positive impact on plant growth, and constitute no risk to humans, animals, plants or the environment. All fertiliser products imported or marketed in Finland must be included either in the national list of fertiliser type designations, or where EC fertilisers are concerned, in the list of fertiliser type designations specified in Annex I to EC Regulation 2003/2003.
