CDM and policy advising in response to the evaluation of the Manure Act

The Manure Act often has to be modified because of changing conditions. The Scientific Committee of the Manure Act (CDM) gives advice and support to the Ministry in order to substantiate the Manure Act.


The Scientific Committee of the Manure Act (CDM) has been established to advise and give recommendations to the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation on issues dealing with the adaptation of the manure Act. The topics in 2012 include the underpinning of parts of the Action Programme for the Nitrates Directive, of a new request for derogation and of the application and excretion standards in the Fertiliser Act.
