EU confirms approval expiry for cyfluthrin
The European Commission has confirmed the cancellation of the extension granted to the EU approval period for the insecticide, cyfluthrin. As a result, the active ingredient’s existing approval expired on April 30th (Agrow No 684, p 13). Cyfluthrin was in the third EU renewal programme, named AIR-3, and previously had an extension to October 31st 2016 to allow more time for procedures to be completed. However, no application to renew its approval was received by the required deadline.
