Plant protection products may only be used if they are authorised. The competent body may, on request and on a case-by-case basis, authorise the use of an authorised plant protection product in areas other than those specified by the authorisation if:
the application is envisaged
- crops which are grown only on a small scale, or
- against harmful organisms which cause significant damage only in certain areas, and
- the intended use corresponds to that in a field of application specified by the authorisation.
The authorisation shall be subject to the necessary conditions to protect public and animal health and to protect against other harmful effects, in particular on the ecosystem.
