The European Community (EC) has expressed concern that farmers and growers have little information on which pesticide products they may be able to import for their own use under the Parallel Trade Permit arrangements. With this in mind, the EC has asked the UK to publish a list of ‘source’ products in other EU Member States that have been verified as the same as UK authorised products.
The advantage to farmers and growers of seeing this list is that they can be confident that if CRD has verified the product they wish to import within the last 12 months, we will already have many of the details we require. This should speed up your application and help to discount the fee payable.
Even if the product you wish to import is on this list you will still be required to get a formal trade permit to import it. To do this you will need to make an application to the Chemicals Regulation Division with the details of the product to be imported and the UK reference product.
The Parallel Trade Permit Source List. The list will be updated regularly so please check often to ensure that you have an up-to-date copy.
