State registration of pesticides in Ukraine
Trade of pesticides is a specific type of activity which is regulated by different legal documents. Entrepreneurs may often have problems while importing some pesticides into Ukraine. The main problem is that a lot of liquids are not allowed to be use at the territory of Ukraine. First if all, you have to examine legal acts which regulate the state registration of pesticides before importing them into Ukraine.
The Law of Ukraine “On pesticides and agrochemicals” defines that it is forbidden to use pesticides before their state registration. As follows, you have to find out whether imported pesticides are registered according to the law before their import. The Article 7 of the abovementioned law regulate that the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine launch the registration. The Decree of the Cabinets of Ministers of Ukraine dated the 4th of March 1996 no. 295 defines a procedure of state test, registration and re-registration and forming of the pesticides’ list. The Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine drafts the State Register of pesticides and agrochemicals which are allowed to use at the territory of Ukraine. So you should be sure that they are in this Register before signing an agreement on their purchase.
If a chemical liquid is in the Register then it can be used and sold in Ukraine. However, there are a lot of cases when entrepreneurs decide to import a new preparation which is not registered in Ukraine. In this case you have to do some actions which are defined by the Decree of the Cabinets of Ministers of Ukraine dated the 4th of March 1996 no. 295. The first step is a state test of a new pesticide which is conducted according to a Testing plan. An entrepreneur must submit a list of documents, including an application form, to the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine if he wants to put a pesticide into this Register. Also you have to submit file on a liquid with provided information about it. Features of tasting will be examined in our future articles.
After it you get a report. This is the main document for the state registration which is possible only in a case of a positive result. So you must submit an application form, a file, information about test results, pesticide’s label and instruction for the state registration to the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine. After the Ministry issue a positive decision. An entrepreneur must pay an official fee and approve a label. Then a preparation will be included to the State Register of pesticides and agrochemicals which are allowed to use at the territory of Ukraine and an entrepreneur gets a registration certificate.
