This page provides details on the fees and charges associated with administering the system for approving products under the Control of Pesticides Regulations (COPR).

It is government policy that the costs of administering the regulatory system are recouped from industry. This is done by charging fees for product approval applications and by applying a levy (based on company turnover) chargeable across the pesticide industry.

HSE accepts payments by either cheque or bank transfer. The full payment details/methods will be outlined in your invoice.

Fees for processing COPR product applications

The fee payable broadly covers the costs involved in evaluating a product application; the amount charged is dependent on whether it is a Committee or Non-committee application.

The following fees will be applied to applications received by CRD from 6 April 2016. When you submit an application you will be invoiced for the appropriate fee.
