Fuelled by its steadily growing agricultural sector, China has become one of top five pesticides markets worldwide. Demand for plant protection products and fertilizers will continue to rise in the country. This makes the Chinese pesticides market an interesting target for agrochemicals and biopesticides producers and formulators. The regulatory compliance landscape in China has undergone numerous changes recently, since the revised Regulation on Pesticide Administration (RPA) came into force in June 2017. Together with our partner in China, SCC has been monitoring recent developments in the Chinese pesticides market to ensure our regulatory know-how is always up to date.
