Illegal import of pesticides

Throughout 2010, the Chemical Inspection Service has kept an ongoing check on import and sales of pesticides and has controlled if the import ban against non-approved pesticides is being followed.

20-30 control visits were performed in 2010 and both users, companies and the borders were controlled.

In 2010, a closer cooperation between the Danish EPA, the Danish Tax and Customs Administration and the Danish Plant Directorate was established and the close cooperation continues in 2011.
