EU to extend prov approvals for two new ais

Proposals to extend national provisional approvals in the EU for two new active ingredients have been cleared by the EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health. The ais are BASF’s fungicide, ametoctradin (trade-marked as Initium), and Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha’s fungicide, disodium phosphonate. Provisional approvals last for three years, but the two-year extensions are needed to provide more time to complete the EU registration process. Both companies applied for EU approval in 2008. Ametoctradin holds approvals in Belgium, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, the Netherlands and Romania. Disodium phosphonate is approved in France and Italy.
