EU decides against re-registration for two active ingredients

The EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health has voted not to re-register the herbicides dichlobenil and propisochlor. Chemtura re-applied for dichlobenil in 2009 after the European Commission decided against re-registration in 2008. The active ingredient was phased out in the EU in 2010 as a result of that decision. Arysta LifeScience resubmitted its application for propisochlor in 2009 after the original EU evaluation identified data gaps. A phase-out schedule will be issued when the European Commission formally adopts the committee's decision.
