EU lists active ingredients for new pesticide statistics system

The European Commission has issued an updated list of the active ingredients (ais) to be covered by the new system for compiling agrochemical usage data. It forms part of the implementation of the new EU pesticide statistics regulation (1185/2009), which came into force in December 2009. The list is in a draft regulation circulated to EU ministers in March. Regulation 1185/2009 established a harmonized data collection system for EU member states, which is to start this year. They will collect information on the annual amounts of ais sold, and also on the annual amounts used on specific crops. Reports on sales will be issued every year, while those on use will be produced every five years. The draft regulation updates the list of ais originally drawn up, which dates from 2006. The new list covers the period up to 2015 and will be revised at least every five years, the commission says.
