Fertilisers Regulation, Annex I, A, E.1, E2.4 and G

EU Regulation 2003/2003 consolidates all the European Union rules that apply to fertilisers, and ensures that the technical requirements outlined in the regulation are implemented uniformly. The regulation only applies to mineral fertilisers consisting of one or more plant nutrients. Annex I lists fertiliser types according to their specific characteristics, while Annex II provides a list of associated tolerances.

Annex Section
E Inorganic micro-nutrient fertilisers
Minimum content of nutrients (percentage by weight). Data on the expression of nutrients. Other requirements Nutrient (b) Minimum content
2 % by weight
Nutrient (b) Expressed as
As water-soluble Cu
Other nutrient (b)
Cu
Other Requirements
When types 3a and 3i are mixed, the complexed fraction must be at least 40 % of the water-soluble Cu
Nutrient declaration
Water-soluble copper (Cu)

Copper (Cu) chelated by each authorised chelating agent that chelates at least 1 % water-soluble copper and that can be identified and quantified by a European standard

Copper (Cu) complexed by the authorised complexing agent that can be identified by a European Standard

Optional: Total copper (Cu) chelated by authorised chelating agent(s)

Other data
The designation must include: (1) the name(s) of the mineral anion(s), if present (2) the name of any authorised chelating agent that chelates at least 1 % water-soluble copper if present and that can be identified and quantified by a European standard or the name of the authorised complexing agent that can be identified by a European standard
Physical form
Solution
Sub-section
E.1.3 Fertilisers containing only one micro-nutrient: Copper
Tolerance
for the declared micro-nutrients: 0.4 % in absolute terms (for a content of more than 2 %) or one fifth of the declared value (for a content not exceeding 2 %)

for the various forms of nitrogen or the declared solubilities of phosphorus pentoxide is one-tenth of the overall content of the nutrient concerned with a maximum of 2 % by mass, provided that the overall content of that nutrient remains within the limits specified in Annex I and the tolerances specified for the types of fertilizers

Production and Ingredients
Aqueous solution of types 3a and/ or 3d or 3i
Type designation
Copper fertiliser solution
Notes
2 A chelating agent may be designated by means of its initials as set out in E.3.

3 If the product leaves no solid residue after being dissolved in water it may be described as 'for dissolution'

4 Where a micro-nutrient is present in a chelated form, the pH range guaranteeing acceptable stability of the chelated fraction shall be stated
