The law established the basic regulations based on fertilizer products that were not considered as EC fertilizers.

The update was necessary due to the incorporation of microorganisms to many of the fertilizers since their mission is also based on supplying the necessary mechanisms to the plant to improve the uptake of nutrients.


Therefore, part of the annexes are updated and Annex VIII is included in the topic of microorganisms:

The new types of fertilizer products are included in Annex I:

The 7 groups that are detailed in the provision are:

National inorganic fertilizers
Organic fertilizers
Organo-mineral fertilizers

In Annex II, the importance for the labeling and identification part, explains the analytical methods that must be followed for the determinations as well as the official regulations. In addition, a margin of tolerance is modified in Annex III. In Annex VI the methods of analysis for these new products are established. The inclusion of a new type of fertilizer is detailed in annex VII. And finally in Annex VIII reference is made to the technical reports as well as the specific requirements for those made with microorganisms, necessary for registration in the fertilizer products register.
