Nine ais get extended EU approval

The European Commission has confirmed extended expiry dates for existing approvals of nine active ingredients to allow more time for the renewal process to be completed. The move was cleared by the EU regulatory committee in May (Agrow No 665, p 6). The ais are: the plant growth regulators, 1-methyl-cyclopropene, daminozide and forchlorfenuron; the fungicides, chlorothalonil and thiophanate-methyl; the herbicides, chlorotoluron and tribenuron; the insecticide/acaricide, cypermethrin; and the insecticide, indoxacarb. The approvals, which were previously due to expire between February 28th 2016 and March 31st 2016, are now extended to October 31st 2017.
