Derogation for research and development

For experiments and trails for research or development purposes with non-authorised plant protection products (art.54), it is possible to apply for exemption from the requirement that to use a plant protection product this product should be authorised. The permit for trial purposes is granted by Ctgb and allows you to conduct field experiments that involves a non-authorised use or the use of non-authorised product.
