The Product Stewardship Programme audit is an initiative by Fertilizers Europe, an organisation representing the largest European fertilizer producers. The audit reaffirmed that the Grupa Azoty Group’s fertilizer products comply with the highest standards. DNV auditors evaluated various parameters throughout the process, such as the benchmarks implemented during product design, technological processes, distribution, and the genuine fulfilment of fertilizer characteristics declared by the Group. The audit covered the main production facilities located in Kedzierzyn-Kozle, Police, Pulawy, and Tarnów.
As a member of Fertilizers Europe, the Grupa Azoty Group is required to partake in recertification audits under the Product Stewardship Programme every three years. The successful completion of such audit confirms that the auditee adheres to the highest international standards in fertilizer production, facilitating the use of advanced production techniques and safety procedures in accordance with European regulations.

We are introducing products that cater to the needs of sustainable agriculture and simultaneously allow farmers to meet their production objectives. The certificate we have earned attests that our fertilisers meet the stringent standards of the fertiliser industry,” comments Filip Grzegorczyk, Vice President of the Management Board of Grupa Azoty S.A. and Vice President of Fertilizers Europe.
“Product Stewardship Programme developed by Fertilizers Europe sets the highest global standards in fertilizer production.
