More EU extensions for ai provisional approvals

EU provisional approvals for more new active ingredients have had to be extended to allow time for the registration process to be completed. Extensions have been cleared for Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha’s insecticide, flonicamid, Dutch company Enhold’s plant growth regulator, silver thiosulfate, and Bayer CropScience’s herbicide, tembotrione, by the EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health. The extensions, which are normally for up to two years, require formal adoption by the European Commission. In addition to silver thiosulfate, Enhold has submitted the flonicamid application. This is the second time that provisional approvals have been extended for the two ais. Flonicamid holds provisional approvals in several EU countries, as Teppeki ( Agrow No 533, p 23). The maize herbicide, tembotrione, received its first provisional approval in Austria in 2007, as Laudis ( Agrow No 513, p 17).
