The new Regulations on the Control of Agricultural Chemicals were officially issued on April 1 and will be implemented since June 1, 2017. The new Regulations will further strengthen the management of agricultural chemicals and provide a solid legal basis for guaranteeing the quality and safety of agricultural products and promoting the building of resource-saving, environment-friendly modern agriculture.
The Regulations have cancelled temporary registration with a relatively low threshold and specified that the agricultural chemicals that are produced in China and are exported to China must be registered; the Regulations have also stated the requirements on production behaviors such as purchase of raw materials, product quality control and consigned processing and subpackaging, and that agricultural chemical manufacturers shall be responsible to the safety and effectiveness of the agricultural chemicals they produce. The Regulations also require manufacturers to adopt traceable electronic information code management on products to ensure the whole production process is traceable and the product quality is controlled.
To increase the severity of punishment for illegal acts, the Regulations have laid out stricter legal responsibilities: where the Agricultural Department and its staff fail to fulfill their supervision and administration duties according to law, they will be punished and even be prosecuted for their criminal liability according to law. The Regulations have also centralized the agricultural chemical production management responsibilities that were originally held by several departments to the Agricultural Department.

Have a China Field Visit, to Explore the Opportunity of Chinese Agchem Market !

In 2015, the Chinese government put forward the Pesticide & Fertilizer-use Zero Growth program, for which a series of supportive policies were released. The program set a new requirement for the supply of environment-friendly products and the provision of advanced agricultural technology for application towards crop protection and crop nutrition services. It will also have a profound effect on the Chinese agrochemical market structure in the future.

At the request of some of our readers, AgroPages is planning to organize a China field visit for enterprises interested in the Chinese agrochemical market. Enterprises, including but not limited to green crop protection product vendors, agrotechnical service providers and precision agriculture-oriented enterprises can participate in the field visit.
