The Fertiliser Act regulates the trade in and use of fertilisers in the Netherlands. Only designated fertiliserscan be traded freely. In general, the Act prohibits the use of wastes and by-products as fertilisers, assecondary raw materials for fertiliser production or for the production, via co-digestion in a biogas productionplant, of digestate destined for use as fertiliser. However, a statutory provision has been adopted thatpermits the use of approved and designated wastes and by-products as fertilisers or as secondary rawmaterials for fertiliser or digestate production. Before wastes and by-products may be designated, they arereviewed to assess their fertilisation value and any environmental risks associated with these uses. Theassessment criteria and evaluation procedures are described in detail in a protocol. The protocol alsodescribes the administrative procedure and summarises the data needed for the review and assessment
