Tariffs 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.
