European Council adopts position on digital labelling in the fertilisers sector

Your substances


The Council has today adopted its position (‘negotiating mandate’) on the proposed regulation on digital labelling of EU fertilising products. This proposal, which amends regulation (EU) 2019/1009, aims to improve the readability of labels, leading to a more efficient use of fertilising products, and to simplify the labelling obligations for suppliers while reducing costs for the industry.

While the Council’s position shares the main objectives of the amended regulation, it introduces several improvements in an attempt to strike the right balance between moving towards the digitalisation of labels for economic operators and the prevention of potential information problems for end-users, taking into consideration digital skills and connectivity limitations that some farmers may face.
