Danish EPA | New Fertilizer Order comes into force on August 1, 2020
The Ministry of the Environment and Food has issued a new Animal Fertilizer Order which comes into force on 1 August 2020. The new Animal Fertilizer Order clarifies, inter alia, that fertilizers from animals other than birds and mammals follow the rules of the Animal Fertilizer Order on waste.
The draft new livestock manure regulation has been in public consultation during the period April 2 - May 7, 2o20. Based on comments received, the Order specifies that fertilizers from animal species belonging to animal classes other than birds (aves) and mammals (mammalia) are regulated as waste in the Animal Fertilizer Order. Animal manure is thus manure derived from birds and mammals, that is, the animals covered by the Animal Husbandry Act. Faecals from e.g. insects and snails used for fertilizer purposes follow the regulations of the Animal Fertilizer Order for waste. In addition, with the new Animal Fertilizer Order, changes are being made to the regulation as proposed by the Ministry of the Environment and Food at the hearing.
