A basic substance is an active substance which:
a. is not a substance of concern; and
b. does not have an inherent capacity to cause endocrine disrupting neurotoxic or immunotoxic effects; and
c. is not predominantly used for plant protection purposes but nevertheless is useful in plant protection either directly or in a product consisting of the substance and a simple diluent; and d. is not placed on the market as a plant protection product (does not require authorization from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development).
The list of basic substances authorized in the European Union is available on the European Commission website (click here).
The website of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development provides evaluation reports (Polish translation) on basic substances, including their characteristics and biological properties, the process of preparation for application, and the permitted scope of application.
