EU Fertilising Products
An EU fertilising product is a fertilising product which is CE marked when made available on the market. Fertilising products include organic and inorganic fertilisers, as well as product function categories such as liming material, soil improvers, growing media, inhibitors and plant biostimulants.
Regulation (EU) 2019/1009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 June 2019 regulates the making available on the market of EU fertilising products. The regulation does not replace national legislations and does not prevent non-harmonised fertilising products from being available on the single market in accordance with national legislation.
In Sweden, there is a national rule on maximum permitted cadmium content in mineral fertilisers, in relation to phosphorus content. Other national rules may also apply.
