What are the aims of the revision of the EC 2003/2003 Fertilisers Regulation?

The European Fertilizer Regulation has been under revision (EC No. 1069/2009) and is currently in the final trialogue negotiations (between the EU Council, Commission and Parliament). The main objective of the revision was the integration of organic fertilizers. This should enable European cross border trade of organic fertilisers.

Related to the Circular Economy Package:

The Fertilisers Regulation revision aims at establishing a regulatory framework enabling production of fertilisers from recovered bio-wastes and other secondary raw materials. This would boost domestic sourcing of plant nutrients which are essential for a sustainable European agriculture, including the critical raw material phosphorus. [1]

Related to the Internal Market Strategy:

The initiative supports the aim to create a deeper and fairer internal market with a strengthened industrial base, by removing existing barriers to free movement of certain innovative fertilisers and facilitating the market surveillance by Member States. The Fertilisers Regulation revision aims at addressing a well-known barrier to free movement on the internal market. [2]
