Period for adapting the label following modification of the labelling on the authorisation certificate

Unless otherwise indicated on the accompanying letter with the modified authorisation certificate, the following periods apply for the modification of the label:

  • Plant protection products for professional use:
    The labels of the products on the market must correspond with the authorisation certificate no later than 18 months after 31 December of the calendar year in which the modification of the certificate was made. For example, a modification made to the certificate in July 2015 must be applied to the label by 1/07/2017.
  • Plant protection products for non-professional use:
    The labels of the products on the market must correspond with the authorisation certificate no later than 3 years after 31 December of the calendar year in which the modification of the certificate was made. For example, a modification made to the certificate in July 2015 must be applied to the label by 1/01/2019.

If the labels must be modified more quickly, e.g., due to deadlines imposed by the EU, or urgent reasons, the periods will be communicated in the accompanying letter.
