Three more ais to gain longer EU approvals
Three more active ingredients are to have their existing EU approvals extended to April 30th 2018 because of ongoing delays in the region’s renewal procedures. The original authorisations for the herbicides, dichlorprop-P and triclopyr, and the fungicide, metconazole, are due to expire on May 31st 2017. Applications for renewal have been submitted for all three ais under the EU’s third renewal programme, named AIR-3. The proposed extensions were voted through by the EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health in July. They require formal adoption by the European Commission before coming into force.
