In order to ensure the quality of fertilisers, that are sold in the European Union, in 2019 a new regulation was adopted (repealing the 2003 regulation), that sets out, how fertilisers may be distributed and marketed in the European Union.
The Regulation lays down new arrangements for the control of the production of fertilisers and the conformity assessment procedures for the certification of fertilisers – the CE marking is a proof that the product complies with all quality requirements and can be marketed safely in all EU Member States.
LATSERT is the European Commission's notified body in the field of fertilisers, which can help with the certification of fertilisers under the new framework.
LATSERT has been operating for more than 20 years in the field of fertilizer certification and their testing. The enterprise laboratory is accredited according to EN ISO/IEC 17025 standards. Laboratory provides various services, for example testing of fertilisers and testing of other products (food, alcohol, fuel, toy). As well as, LATSERT offers additional certification services, expertise, counselling and training services.
