Report 1/22: Government assignment on review of fees

The Swedish Chemicals Agency's review of the fees for chemicals and pesticides and a plan for how to handle accumulated financial imbalances.

The Swedish Chemicals Agency proposes that the government decides to:

  • adjust the accumulated surplus of the chemical fees by 20 million SEK,
  • reset the accumulated deficit for the pesticide fees,
  • adjust chemical and pesticide fees,
  • adjust the financial target for fee-financed biocidal operations to “the fees will contribute
    to the costs” during the phase-in period of the European Biocidal Products Regulation,
  • act as reference member state for more biocidal applications,
  • subsidize application fees for certain types of product authorisations.
