EU to adjust intro of new data requirements for agchem products
Deadlines for the imposition of new agrochemical data requirements on product applications are to be removed under proposals from the European Commission. The planned change would be made to EU Regulation 283/2013, which updated data requirements to reflect the stricter approval conditions introduced with the EU agrochemical registration Regulation (1107/2009 – Agrow No 662, p 10). At the time, transitional measures allowed companies to continue to use the former data requirements if they submitted their product approvals by December 31st 2015. The Commission proposes to remove this date from the transitional measures in Regulation 283/2013.
