Xeda loses EU bid for diphenylamine interim relief

French company Xeda International has lost a second bid to get the EU courts to suspend the phase-out of the fungicide, diphenylamine (DPA). The European Commission decided not to re-register DPA in 2009 and set a deadline for existing stocks to be used by May 30th 2011 ( Agrow No 582, p 8). Xeda is challenging that decision and wanted the phase-out to be suspended until either the main case is settled or the evaluation of the active ingredient’s re-application is completed. However, its request has been turned down by the EU General Court on the grounds that it did not demonstrate a serious financial loss or urgency.
