The role of the Statistics Committee is primarily to provide members with essential EU-28 market statistics so they can benchmark themselves against the European market in terms of market share, production, production capacities and costs.
The committee also provides support to other Fertilizers Europe committees in terms of statistics and resources to support their work (e.g. in advocacy, trade defence, etc.).
For Agriculture, it contributed to the annual "Forecast of food, farming and fertilizer use" providing actual consumption figures. It also assisted the Technical committee with BAT (Best Available Technology) and ETS issues and provided regular support for the Trade & Economic committee in trade defence cases.
The Committee is working in compliance with the competition law.
