Guidance for companies

If you are a manufacturer, importer or retailer of chemical Products, pesticides or articles, you are responsible for ensuring that these products do not harm human health or the environment. This applies regardless of whether you sell the products in a physical store or via e-commerce.

In order to assess the extent of your responsibility, you need to identify your role in the distribution chain and check the rules that apply to your products and articles. A company may have several roles, and the rules apply to companies both big and small.
