The new amendments to the Federal Law "On the Safe Handling of Pesticides and Agrochemicals" began to be developed by the Ministry of Industry and Trade. They are designed to increase the competitiveness of Russian products in export markets. The notification on the beginning of the development of the document is published on the portal of draft regulatory acts.
The bill’s card says that today the same procedures and stages of state registration apply to pesticides and agrochemicals produced in Russia for export. The amendments are aimed at solving the problem when competitors from other countries occupy foreign markets during the time it takes to test and obtain conclusions about the examinations performed.
Public hearings of the bill will be held from August 30 to September 13. If the amendment is adopted, the legislation is expected to enter into force in December 2020.
