If the total volume of all your notifiable products is at least 1,000 kg per year, you must pay a chemical charge.
This charge consists of two parts: a Register charge and a chemical charge based on quantity. The total charge is based on the following:
- an annual Register charge of SEK 600 for each product or organism, although not exceeding SEK 70,000 a year
- an annual quantity charge of SEK 12 per tonne of products or organisms, although not exceeding SEK 70,000 per year.
This charge shall be paid in arrears and is based on the annual accounting report of numbers of products and quantities.
The chemical charge is coordinated with the pesticide charge. If you have an authorisation for a pesticide and pay an annual charge for that, you do not pay a chemical charge.
If you have a permit in your capacity as a commercial agent and you are reporting products on behalf of another party, you must in your capacity as an agent pay the chemical charge to the Products Register.
Annual fee for pesticides
If you have had a pesticide authorised, you or the person representing you (a so-called permanent representative) must pay an annual fee to cover the duration of the period of authorisation. An annual fee shall also be paid if you have received a parallel trade permit for a plant protection product or a biocidal product. The annual fee shall be paid as of the calendar year following the year when the product was authorised and no later than the end of the calendar year during which the authorisation applies.
Fee based on sales value
At the start of the year the Swedish Chemicals Agency sends out a request to companies to report the value of their sales of pesticides during the previous year. Details about the sales value of chemical and biological plant protection products and biocidal products and details about the same for biocidal products are to be reported separately. The information reported to us serves as the basis for the annual fee that we decide on. A decision on the annual fee is sent out to you together with an invoice. The annual fee is payable no later than 31 May.
The pesticide fee is coordinated with the chemical charge for the Products Register
As of 2014 the processing of the annual fee for pesticides has been coordinated with the chemical charge for the Products Register. This means that the information reported also includes that which is to be submitted to the Products Register.
The chemical charge is the fee paid by companies for reporting their chemical products to the Products Register. However, a company should not pay both an annual fee for pesticides and a chemical charge to the Products Register for one and the same product.
