Trader Notice No. 02/2019 RE: Arrangements for the control of Fertilisers originating from outside of the European Union.
The Regulation that allows for the free trade of fertilisers within the EU, Regulation (EC) No 2003/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council, would no longer apply to the United Kingdom.
Trader Notice No. 02/2020 RE: The inclusion and labelling of inhibitors in fertilisers
The regulations allow for a range of inclusion levels of inhibitors (min - max). The rate of inhibitor used must meet minimum regulatory requirements, should ensure effective reduction in greenhouse gas/ammonia emissions and should be based on independent research relevant to Irish climatic conditions where possible.
