Crop Protection

Achieving Plant Protection Products (PPP) EU Legislation

The process of getting your active substances and products approved within the EU isn’t easy. Directives lead to regulations which in turn are often updated, so you need expert help and insider knowledge to achieve compliance for regulations including (EU) 1272/2008, 1107/2009, 396/2005 and more.

LKC provides that expert help. Crop protection regulations are necessarily strict; therefore, authorisation is stringent. The aim of European legislation is to increase food production without compromising human, animal and environmental health.  We have the flexibility, technical expertise and regulatory strategy know how you need,  to help with submission and the successful authorisation of your crop protection products.
