Final ais near end of EU review
The EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health has voted to re-register 11 pesticide active ingredients. It has decided not to re-register a further two ais. The Committee failed to reach the qualified majority required to reach a decision on another six ais, while a vote on one ai was postponed. The 20 substances represent the final ais in the third and fourth rounds of the EU review of existing ais to go through the decision-making process, the European Commission says (see this issue).
