Four ais gain EU approval extensions

The European Commission has confirmed extensions of 16-18 months to the EU approvals of four active ingredients. Approval expiry dates are January 31st 2018 for the insecticide, chlothianidin, the fungicide, dimoxystrobin, the insecticide/nematicide, oxamyl, and the herbicide, pethoxamid. The extension is to allow more time for procedures to be completed for the renewal of the authorisations, and was voted through by the EU regulatory committee in October (Agrow No 675, p 10). The decision means that a total of 83 ais in the renewal programme have been granted extensions because of slow progress.
