Some rules within the sphere of responsibility of the Swedish Chemicals Agency are not based on EU harmonised regulations or directives, but are specifically Swedish rules. Other EU countries may not have any corresponding rules.
Examples of such specifically Swedish rules are:
- Rules on reporting to the Products Register.
- Permit requirement for sale and private use of very hazardous chemical products.
- Certain Swedish restrictions and bans.
- Swedish transitional rules on biocides.
- Rules on biocidal products consisting of nematodes, insects and arachnids.
- Rules on plant protection products consisting of nematodes, insects and arachnids.
- National pesticide fees.
There are also specifically Swedish rules on fees and sanction charges, public access to information rules and secrecy rules.
