Registration requirements for fertilizers and supplements
Effective October 26, 2020, the amended Fertilizers Regulations are in force. Regulated parties can comply with either the "new" regulations or the "old" regulations for a period of 3 years. This applies to the manufacture, sale, import or export of fertilizers and supplements regulated under the Fertilizers Act.
Some fertilizers and most supplements regulated under the Fertilizers Act require registration and pre-market assessment prior to importation and sale in Canada. Registration requirements vary per submission type, class of fertilizer or supplement and risk profile of the product.
Registration triggers for fertilizers and supplements is intended to assist applicants in determining whether their product requires registration.
The information requirements detailed in both the "New regulations: guide to submitting applications for registration under the Fertilizers Act" and "Old regulations: guide to submitting applications for registration under the Fertilizers Act" are specifically designed to assist prospective registrants in preparing complete and well organized submissions to facilitate the file review process and ultimately expedite time to market.
The submission checklists offer further step-by-step instructions on the type of information required in a submission.
