You can search for products in the Plant Protection Product Register using, for example, the product name, registration number, type of preparation, name of the active substance or the CAS number. You can also search for certain types of products using such search terms as ‘ammattikäyttö’ (‘professional use’) when looking for products authorised for professional use.

Basic search for a product/products

  • How can I search the register for a list of all products authorised in Finland?

    • Select ‘Suorita haku’ (‘Search’).

  • How can I search the register for a product with a specific name?

    • Write the name of the product in the Hakusana (Search term) field under Sanahaku (Search by name)

      • enter the product name in full, such as Karate Zeon technique or

      • enter the first part of the name and cut a word off at the end by using the asterisk *, such as Karate* or Karate Zeon* or

      • enter a full word from the beginning of the product name, such as Karate.

  • How can I find a product the name of which has changed?

    • For example, the name of the product Fungazil 100 SL has been changed and its new name is Diabolo

    • You can search for the product using its former name:

      • if you write Fungazil 100 SL in the Hakusana (Search term) field, you will get the results under the new name of the product, or Diabolo.

      • the name of the product included in the register may change, but the product's four-digit registration number always remains the same. You can also search for the product on the basis of the registration number.

  • Please note that you can also search for the product by writing the product name in the Valmisteen nimi (Product name) field under Tarkennettu haku (Advanced search), but then
    • you will not be able to search for the product with its former name
    • you must search for the product using its full name, such as Karate Zeon technique or using the first part of the name and cutting a word off at the end by using the asterisk *, such as Karate*
    • you cannot search for the product using the first word in the name only, such as Karate.

Search for products withdrawn or to be withdrawn from the register

  • How can I search for products withdrawn from the register?

    • Under Tarkennettu haku (Advanced search) use ‘Hae vain poistetut valmisteet’ (‘Search for withdrawn products only’).

    • For withdrawn products the register only lists the product name, registration number, type of preparation and date of withdrawal.

  • How can I search for products to be withdrawn from the register shortly?

    • Under Tarkennettu haku (Advanced search) use ‘Hae vain poistuvat valmisteet’ (‘Search for products to be withdrawn only’).

Search using a search term 

  • How can I search for which products have been authorised for use for a specific plant, such as sugarbeet - sokerijuurikas in Finnish?

    • Consider in which inflected forms the Finnish name of the plant can be mentioned in the register: sokerijuurikas, sokerijuurikkaalla, sokerijuurikasviljelmillä and so on.

    • Try writing the name of the plant in the Hakusana (Search term) field in an appropriately abbreviated form: sokerijuur* .

    • Please note that the search results can also include the kind of products with the following kind of statement under the intended uses: not for sugarbeet OR it may include products with no mention of sugarbeet under Approved uses, but with such restrictions of use as must not be used after sugarbeet.

    • Therefore, since in certain cases the search results may also include products not approved for the plant written in the search term field, ALWAYS CHECK THE PRODUCT INFORMATION OF THE PREPARATIONS PRODUCED BY THE SEARCH TO ENSURE THAT THE USE OF THE PRODUCT IS REALLY ALLOWED FOR THE USE YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR.
