Plant protection products may only be used if they are authorised. The competent authority may, on a case-by-case request, authorise the use of an authorised plant protection product in areas other than those defined by the authorisation, where: the application is foreseen on plants grown only to a minor extent, or against harmful organisms that cause significant damage only in certain areas, and the intended application corresponds to those in a field of application determined by the authorisation. The authorisation shall be accompanied by the necessary conditions for the protection of human and animal health and for protection against other harmful effects, in particular on the natural environment.

No documentation is required.


Preconditions
