Authorised products

In Finland, only plant protection products approved by Tukes can be used. Information on plant protection products authorised by Tukes can be found in the Plant Protection Product Register maintained by Tukes.

In an emergency situation in plant protection, when a danger cannot be averted by any other preparation or control method, Tukes may grant an authorisation by derogation for a specific plant protection product for a maximum of 120 days. Information on derogations granted by Tukes can be found on a separate table.

Where can I find information on new authorised products?

Tukes maintains a list of new authorised products and parallel products approved during the year. More detailed information on the terms and conditions of use of products and their instructions for use can be found on the Plant Protection Product Register.

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.

Changes can also occur in the product's restrictions of use. Tukes maintains a list of changes in restrictions of use concerning the use of products in the vicinity of water bodies, in groundwater areas and in consecutive years. Always check the Plant Protection Product Register for up-to-date information on restrictions.

Where can I find information on products that have been or will shortly be withdrawn from the register?

Tukes maintains a list of products that have been or will be withdrawn from the register within the next few years. You can also search for the information in the Plant Protection Product Register.
