EU approval periods extended for five ais

The European Commission has confirmed an extension of existing EU approval periods to April 30th 2018 for five active ingredients: the herbicide, clopyralid; the fungicides, cyprodinil, fosetyl and pyrimethanil; and the plant growth regulator, trinexapac-ethyl. Applications have been submitted for the renewal of all five ai approvals, which were originally due to expire in April or May 2017. The extensions are to allow more time for EU renewal procedures to be completed. They were cleared by the EU regulatory committee in May (Agrow No 690, p 8). If the EU evaluation process decides against renewal of an ai, the existing approval will revert to its original expiry date, the Commission notes.
