EU sets system for confidential agchem data

The European Commission has stipulated the methods to be used by national authorities to identify confidential data when they are submitting reports on agrochemical sales. The methods are part of the implementation of the new EU pesticide statistics Regulation (1185/2009), which starts collecting data on sales and usage this year ( Agrow No 612, p 14). EU member states will submit data in a specific electronic format to ensure consistency. They will use a “flag” to indicate whether information on a particular active ingredient, chemical class or product group is confidential or not.
