EFSA extends comment deadline for ai dossier guide
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has extended the consultation deadline for its draft guidance on new requirements for submitting scientific literature sources in application dossiers for agrochemicals. The deadline for comments, which was formerly September 6th 2010 ( Agrow No 597, p 12), is now October 15th 2010. The consultation relates to requirements laid down in the new EU agrochemical registration Regulation (1107/2009), which will be implemented in 2011. Applicants will have to provide scientific peer-reviewed literature on the side-effects of ais and relevant metabolites on health, the environment and non-target species.
