EU approval conditions amended for 13 low-risk ais

The European Commission has amended agrochemical approval conditions for 13 active ingredients of natural origin. The changes reflect the completion of the European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) peer review of the EU evaluations. The ais were originally re-registered in 2009 under a faster procedure for low-risk substances, which permitted the EFSA to complete its review at a later date ( Agrow No 560, p 8). The ais are: the plant growth regulator, spearmint oil; the herbicide, iron sulfate; the attractant/fungicide, urea; the attractants, 1,4-diaminobutane (putrescine) and hydrolysed proteins; and the repellents, aluminium ammonium sulfate, aluminium silicate, denathonium benzoate, fat distillation residues, fish oil, methyl nonyl ketone, tall oil crude and tall oil pitch. The new conditions apply from November 1st 2012.
