Diphenylamine resubmitted for EU approval

A re-application for EU approval of the fungicide, diphenylamine, is being assessed by Ireland, as rapporteur member state. The application was resubmitted by Cerexagri (United Phosphorus) on behalf of The Diphenylamine Data Development Consortium. The European Commission decided not to re-register diphenylamine in 2009 and set a deadline for existing stocks to be used by May 30th 2011 ( Agrow No 582, p 8). The Commission cited a number of concerns, including missing data. However, it was not able to gain majority support from EU member states for the decision. At the time, the industry task force supporting the active ingredient expressed surprise at the decision, in view of the positive recommendation from the rapporteur. Diphenylamine is used to prevent scald in apples and pears.
