EU approval nears for two ais

Proposals to grant full EU approval to two new fungicides, BASF’s ametoctradin (trade-marked as Initium) and Syngenta’s mandipropamid, have been voted through by the EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health. Once confirmed by the European Commission, they will be added to the list of approved active ingredients in the EU agrochemical registration Regulation (1107/2009). Applications were submitted in 2008 for ametoctradin and in 2005 for mandipropamid. Both ais had their three-year national provisional approvals extended to allow more time for the EU approval process to be completed ( Agrow No 652, p 10 and No 622, p 13). Ametoctradin holds provisional approvals in Belgium, Germany, Estonia, France, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Romania, with applications submitted in Austria, Ireland, Italy, Slovenia and the UK. Mandipropamid holds provisional approvals in 26 member states, and has an application under evaluation in Spain.
