EU approval conditions to change for two ais
Proposals to amend the EU approval conditions for two biopesticides have been voted through by the EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health. They are the bioinsecticide, Cydia pomonella granulovirus, and the attractant, straight chain lepidopteran pheromones. The changes reflect the completion of detailed reviews by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Both active ingredients were approved in 2009 under a fast-track process that granted approvals in advance of the final EFSA review (Agrow No 558, p 8 and No 560, p 8).
