Active substances exempted from the ban

Innehållsförteckning:

Here you can find comprehensive tables over the active substances exempted from the ban on use of plant protections products in certain areas. The ban and the exemptions will apply from the 1st of October 2021.

The use of plant protections products in certain areas is banned from the 1st of October 2021 according to Chapter 2, 37 § p. 2-6 in the Swedish Ordinance (2014:425) on pesticides. According to 37a § in the ordinance the Swedish Chemicals Agency has the mandate to decide on exemptions from the ban for active substances that only pose low risks. This means that plant protection products containing the exempted substances are also exempted, and may be used in the areas covered by the ban.

The substances exempted by the Swedish Chemicals Agency are:

  • active substances approved as substances posing low risks in accordance with Article 22 of the EU Plant Protection Products Regulation (No 1107/2009) and listed in Part D in the Annex of the EU Regulation (EC) No 540/2011.
  • active substances listed in Annex 15 to KIFS 2008:3.

The tables below show comprehensive lists of the exempted active substances and in which legislation they are listed. Substances that occur in both legislations are shown as listed in (EC) No 540/2011. There is one table for chemical substances and one for microorganisms. The tables are compiled by the Swedish Chemicals Agency. The completeness and correctness of the tables cannot be guaranteed at a given time, due to updating of the legislations. Hence, for the current and valid exemptions at any given time, we refer to the legislation mentioned above.

The tables also show which substances that will in the longer term be allowed in products authorised for non-professional users. The Swedish Chemicals Agency has decided that from the 17th of May 2021 only products containing exempted active substances can be placed in authorisation class 3 when authorisations are granted or renewed. Authorisation class 3 includes the products allowed for non-professional users.
