More ai EU approval periods to be extended

Existing EU approval periods are to be extended for four more active ingredients to allow time for renewal procedures to be completed. They are: the herbicide, clopyralid; the fungicides, cyprodinil, fosetyl and pyrimethanil; and the plant growth regulator, trinexapac-ethyl. Their original ten-year EU re-registrations commenced in 2007 and renewal applications have been submitted for all four ais. Proposals for a one-year extension to April 30th 2018 were cleared by the EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health in May. A formal European Commission decision is required before the extensions come into force.
