Carbendazim renewal set to proceed in EU

The European Commission is free to go ahead with its proposal to renew the EU approval for restricted use of the fungicide, carbendazim. EU Agriculture Ministers failed to reach a majority vote in March on whether to reject or accept the proposals, following a similar outcome by the EU regulatory committee earlier this year ( Agrow No 610, p 10). The Commission plans to renew the authorisation for 3.5 years, with restrictions on application rates and the imposition of mandatory risk mitigation measures. The ai’s previous re-registration in 2007 also sparked member state disagreements due to its intrinsic toxicological properties. An application to renew that authorisation was submitted by a task force comprising Bayer CropScience, BASF and DuPont.
