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.
