2. In case the documents on the pesticide preparation are issued in the EU country member of OECD the registration of the pesticide preparation is carried out on the basis of the consideration of the registration dossier by the Ministry of Agriculture of Georgia and examination of the results of the researches conducted in corresponding country by the Laboratory of the Ministry of Agriculture of Georgia.

3. In case the documents on the pesticide preparation are issued in country which doesn't belong neither to EU countries nor the OECD Member States the registration of the pesticide preparation is carried out on the basis of the consideration of the registration dossier by the Ministry of Agriculture of Georgia, conduction of the required registration researches by the institutes and examination of the results of the researches conducted in corresponding country by the Laboratory of the Ministry of Agriculture of Georgia.

Please note that in case the Ministry of Agriculture of Georgia considers that the information on the pesticide preparation or other information regarding the pesticide preparation is insufficient or there is the lack of research data on the pesticide preparation the product is registered for three years. During three-year registration it is possible to conduct additional required tests and basing on the results of the tests the Ministry of Agriculture of Georgia may consider to register the pesticide preparation for five years.
