CMC10 WEBINAR - 1st of July 2024

CMC10 webinar



Understanding the requirements of processed manure to become an EU fertiliser according to (EU) No. 2019/1009 Regulation

Participate the webinar to discover which materials will be eligible for CE marking in compliance with the CMC10 category

Participation at the webinar will help you:

What does adopting the revised Regulation mean?

The CMC10 webinar will cover the details of the amendment of CMC10 component material category according to (EU)2019/1009 Regulation, which will be adopted this summer. It is beneficial to pay attention to this issue now and start compiling the necessary documentation for the certification procedure, since all NOBOs are expected to face capacity shortages after the amendment comes into force.

After the CMC10 amendment will become into legal force even processed manure can be used as a component in EU fertilisers, if it meets the hygienisation and analytical requirements of the CMC10.

In practice it means that CE marked products containing processed manure can be freely marketed in all EU member states without the need for certification by each individual country’s authorities!

The amendment of the processed manure component of the EU Fertiliser Regulation, which is scheduled to come into force in July 2024, will introduce several new requirements to the existing Regulation.



The amendment will specify the followings for processed manure:

Preventing the spread of invasive and other weed species in processed manure, the Regulation establishes further manufacturing procedures and parameters to ensure the weed seed free status of materials classified under CMC10.

In addition, the new amendment addresses the possible origin of manure, mandatory physical treatments, content elements of laboratory tests and post-processing storage requirements as well. Our webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of these aspects, ensuring clarity and transparency for companies.

Dr. Ildikó Varga

Expert (Biostimulant Specialist) of CerTrust (NOBO 2806)

ldikó had studied plant protection and agricultural microbiology before she obtained her PhD in Agricultural Sciences in 2013. In her early carreer she was participating in different biopesticide development projects as an agricultural microbiological researcher.

She implemented in open-field trials as well as microbiological and in vitro laboratory tests in those years when she was developing microbial and other natural-originated biostimulants.

According to her thoughts, sustainable agricultural practice could only be successful with high quality input materials. Thus, in 2022 she joined CerTrust Ltd. as an expert to contribute to the conformity procedures of organic originated EU fertilisers, especially plant biostimulants.
