Earlier, the amount of funds paid for the phytosanitary service provided was determined by the Tariff Council. According to the amendment, this power has been transferred to the Cabinet of Ministers.

In line with the “Rules for state testing, registration of pesticides, biological products and agrochemicals, as well as inclusion in the list of medicines approved for use”, state testing, registration and examination of pesticides, biological products and agrochemicals is funded by the applicant.
