In Finland, only plant protection products approved by Tukes can be used.
Information on the products authorised by Tukes and the conditions, restrictions and instructions on their use is available from Tukes’s Plant Protection Product Register.
Tukes maintains the following tables related to the authorisation of products:
- New products authorised during the year (including parallel products)
- Changes in uses
- Products to be withdrawn from the register shortly
- Product name changes
Tukes does not publish an annual list of plant protection products. Tukes compiles and saves a list of currently authorised plant protection products at the beginning of each year. An Excel list of the products authorised during the year is available to order if required.
Withdrawn and soon-to-be-withdrawn products are listed in the Plant Protection Product Register. Tukes does not keep a dedicated list of withdrawn products. A list of products withdrawn in the period 31 December 1998 - 31 December 2019 is still available on the website.
How can I find out if there have been any recent changes in the uses and restrictions of use approved for a product?
Tukes approves new uses for registered products on application if the criteria for approval are met. Tukes withdraws authorised uses either on the authorisation holder's request or because the requirements concerning the safe use of the product for the use in question are not met. Tukes maintains a list of changes in authorised uses.
Tukes does not keep a list of possible amendments to restrictions on the use of products, but publishes the information in industry journals. Product-specific restrictions on use are listed in the Plant Protection Product Register and the label text in the Register.
Where can I find information on products that have been or will shortly be withdrawn from the register?
Tukes maintains a list of products that will be withdrawn from the register within the next few years. You can also search for the information about products that have been or will be withdrawn from the register within the next few years in the Plant Protection Product Register.
