Under current European integration processes, the issue of the formation of agricultural land use to comply with the strategy of sustainable development of Ukraine is gaining considerable interest for research. Given the imperfection of the regulatory framework and the instability of the political situation in the country, the problem of maintaining the rational use and protection of agricultural land use is especially relevant. In our opinion, one of the factors in ensuring the formation of sustainable agricultural land use is the maintenance of agrochemical certificate of the field, land plot, i.e., implementing agrochemical certification. The purpose of this research is to analyze the regulation of relations in the field of agrochemical certification in the formation of sustainable agricultural land use. The study used general and special methods, such as monographic, analysis and synthesis, analogies and comparisons, graphics, generalization, statistics, and more. The methodological basis of the research is a comprehensive approach, system and structural analysis, and dialectical method of scientific cognition. The paper substantiates that agrochemical certification of land is an important tool in the formation of sustainable development of agricultural land use through the interaction between the legal, technological, environmental, and economic environment. The algorithm of agrochemical certification has been improved, which gives a systematic representation of the certification process. The proposed algorithm includes the structuring of the nine stages of its implementation. Based on the study of the current state of agrochemical certification, its principles have been generalized, and the functional possibilities of its implementation have been identified, which can be taken into account in drafting the Law of Ukraine “On the State Agrochemical Certification of Agricultural Land”. In terms of reforming land relations to obtain reliable information about the state of soils and the dynamics of changes in soil indicators, it is necessary to improve the methodology of soil sampling and agrochemical certification towards detailing and adapting to the conditions of agricultural sector reform; to introduce GPS software that allows integrating the results of field surveys with the GIS database in the research of agricultural lands; to create databases on the spatial characteristics of the state land fund.
