EU corrects implementation date for new agchem rules

The European Commission has corrected the text of new pesticide use rules to reduce the implementation deadline to exactly two years. The sustainable use of pesticides Directive (2009/128) came into force on November 25th 2009 and stated that member states had until December 14th 2011 to transpose it into national law ( Agrow No 581, p 8). The Commission has now issued a correction changing this date to November 26th 2011. All similar deadlines for other tasks have also been brought forward to November 26th, such as establishing national action plans (by 2012), user certification (2013), distributor monitoring (2015) and equipment inspection (2016).
