Tarrifs

Tarrifs based on an advance payment and subsequent calculation

An advance fee is applicable for applications for active substances, zonal applications with the Netherlands as zonal Rapporteur Member State (zRMS) and for NLKUG applications (National expansion with small applications). With these applications it is difficult to predict in advance how many hours the assessment will cost and there is a large variation in the required assessment time between the applications.

The Ctgb will charge the advance fee at the start of the application. For zonal applications (with the Netherlands as zRMS) the experience is that this covers the first assessment. However, if the Ctgb has to ask additional questions – this occurs for the majority of the assessments - a new intake will be made, and a supplementary advance fee will be charged based on this.

Applicants pay an advance fee for the assessment based on the standard costs. Then the risk assessment follows on various aspects, such as human toxicology, ecotoxicology, behavior and fate in the environment, physicochemical properties and efficacy. The costs depend on the required work and that differs considerably per type of application.

Tariffs based on fixed costs

Fixed costs apply for the majority of the assessments. This concerns the rates for short-cycle applications such as zonal applications with the Netherlands as a Concerned Member State (CMS) and mutual recognition. The costs always start with an application rate for the intake. The assessment will start and Ctgb determines if the dossier is complete. If no information is missing, the dossier can proceed to the assessment phase.

Applicants pay a fixed amount for the assessment based on the standard costs. But practice shows that 'add ons' will be added, such as testing against specific guidances, an additional draft Registration Report, many GAP rules (the number of applications of the product, the plant-pest combination), evaluation due to an additional active substance, studies to be evaluated, and so on. Every add-on means extra time to review, which cost extra time, with the corresponding rate. It is therefore difficult to provide an average rate for a certain type of application.
