The Plant Protection Department received a Document No. 238 / CV-HHPBVN dated August 23, 2019 of the Vietnam Fertilizer Association, on resolving problems in the fertilizer import process. In this regard, the Department of Plant Protection has the following ideas:
1. Clause 1, Article 6 and Clause 1, Article 27 of Decree No. 108/2017 / ND-CP of September 20, 2017 of the Government on fertilizer management stipulate:
“Fertilizers are products and commodities group 2; which are conditional business recognized by the Plant Protection Department in Vietnam "
"Organizations and individuals that have fertilizers already recognized and circulated in Vietnam may import or authorize other organizations or individuals to import them, no import permits are required, except for the case specified in Clause 2 of Article this "
According to these regulations, organizations and individuals are only allowed to import fertilizers that have been recognized for sale in Vietnam; In case of importing fertilizers not yet recognized for circulation in Vietnam, import licenses are required in one of the cases specified in Clause 2, Article 27 of Decree No. 108/2017 / ND-CP.
For cases of importing fertilizers already recognized for circulation in Vietnam, the import dossiers and product information (name of fertilizer; quality criteria; ingredients, nutritional content; methods use, instructions for use; expiry date ...,) must be consistent with the corresponding contents of the Decision recognizing circulating fertilizers (Article 34 of the Decree No. 108/2017 / ND-CP).
2. Regarding quality criteria (including humidity, density, pH ...), ingredients and nutritional content:
The quality criteria, ingredients and nutritional content of fertilizer products registered and announced by organizations and individuals meet the provisions of Sections 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, Appendix V issued attached to the Decree No. 108/2017 / ND-CP and these indicators are reflected in the content of the Decision recognizing fertilizers circulating in Vietnam; For some types of fertilizer, it is required to check the limiting factors specified in Section 6, Appendix V issued with Decree No. 108/2017 / ND-CP.
Therefore, the state management agency shall base on the criteria of quality, composition and nutritional content in the Decision on recognition of fertilizers circulated in Vietnam; The limiting factors specified in Section 6, Appendix V issued together with Decree No. 108/2017 / ND-CP compare with the acceptable content between the test results and the registered contents specified in Section 8, Appendix V issued together with Decree No. 108/2017 / ND-CP to conclude on the quality of imported fertilizer products.
