The Swedish Chemicals Agency has a new computer system for the Pesticides Register. The register now has a new look and contains more information.
The Pesticides Register contains data on approved and previously approved pesticides. Information is available on uses, particular conditions, and other data. The new register also contains information on parallel trade permits. In the spring of 2014 it will also be possible to search for decisions on exemptions.
The following additional work remains;
- All PDF files that were linked in the old register will be registered in the new register, this can be for example specified conditions for plant protection products and additional conditions for biocidal products. The update is expected to be completed by the end of January 2014.
- Existing exemptions will be registered. The update is expected to be completed by the end of February 2014.
- Current expanded uses of pesticides will be registered. The update is expected to be completed by the end of April 2014.
- Quality control of the additional names registered on certain products is ongoing.
The installation of the new database will lead to broken links on our website. We are presently working to update them.
We apologize that all the data is not in place right away, and we hope that you will appreciate
