Ethephon & fenamiphos EU approvals to be extended

The European Commission has proposed a one-year extension for existing EU approvals of the organophosphonate plant growth regulator, ethephon, and the organophosphate insecticide, fenamiphos. The move would change the expiry date to July 31st 2018. Both active ingredients gained approval in 2006, having completed the review of existing ais. Applications have been submitted to renew the approvals, but more time is needed to complete registration procedures. The proposals were voted through by the EU Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed in October and require publication in the EU Official Journal before coming into force.
