Summary

Thermal steam sterilisation of soil in a greenhouse requires approval from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority.

Difference

EU regulation 2092/91 does not cover green house production as specific area.

Justification

Thermal sterilisation should be restricted for ecological reasons, and it is therefore required an approval from the authorities.
