Regulation (EU) 2019 / 1148 for all actors in the fertilizer supply chain

All actors in the fertilizer supply chain, from producers to professional users, must comply with the new regulation on the marketing and use of precursors for explosives. This was issued by the European Union in the fight against the criminal use of fertilizers. This new regulation came into force in February 2021.

Essentially, for the business relationships of agricultural traders, it means that customer declarations must be available, which must show the intended use of fertilizers containing ammonium nitrate (> 16% ammonium nitrate).


The requirements can be implemented system-supported with tacoss.eTRADE.


What should I do?

Inform your business partners and ask them to fill out the customer declaration. Every customer who purchases products containing ammonium nitrate must provide this information annually and before the first purchase agreement in a year.
