New regulations regarding fees for pesticides apply from 1 August 2011.
The amendment concerns fees for specific uses. An application for a parallell trade permit for a chemical pesticide amounts to SEK 20 000 and an application for extended product approval for a plant protection product for a minor use area amounts to SEK 12 500.
No amendments have been made with regard to the ordinary application fee for authorisation of pesticides.
The new fees constitute an adaptation of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market, implemented in Chapter 6 of the Swedish Chemical Charges for the Examination and Enforcement Under the Environmental Code Ordinance (1998:940), as amended by Ordinance (2011:928).
