EU provisional approvals extended for more new ais

The European Commission has allowed EU member states to extend provisional approvals for five new active ingredients by two years until June 30th 2012. The decision was cleared by the EU regulatory committee in May for: Nissan Chemical’s fungicide, amisulbrom; DuPont’s insecticide, chlorantraniliprole; Dow AgroSciences’ fungicide, meptyldinocap; Syngenta’s herbicide, pinoxaden; and BASF’s herbicide, profoxydim ( Agrow No 592, p 11). The three-year approvals need to be extended to allow more time for the EU registration process to be completed. Profoxydim’s application has been in the system since March 1998, while the others date from March 2004 (pinoxaden), August 2005 (meptyldinocap), March 2006 (amisulbrom) and February 2007 (chlorantraniliprole).
