Electronic application

The BVL is opening the opportunity to place applications electronically. For the time being the new service is available for these types of applications:

  • Application for the authorisation of a plant protection product
  • Application for the extension of an authorisation (amendment and extension on minor use)
  • Application for setting/amending of MRLs

For the first two types of applications the electronic application is mandatory as of 1 February 2014.

In order to place electronic applications, a nonrecurring registration at the BVL is necessary. For that purpose please use the registration form in the right-hand column. The guideline "Electronic application" can be found there as well; it contains information on the registration, system requirements and technical advice for using the portal and the Virtual Postbox (VPS).

Instructions for filling in the forms as well as tips for the application can be found in the respective categories on the left (Authorisation procedure, MRL procedure).

The portal is accessible here.
