EU lawyers debate ethofumesate

Dutch company AgriChem should be allowed to continue to market the sugar beet herbicide, ethofumesate, in the EU without having to resubmit a full dossier of registration data, says an adviser to the European Court of Justice (ECJ). UK advocate general Eleanor Sharpston issued her opinion in a case brought by German company Feinchemie Schwebda and Bayer CropScience, which supported the active ingredient through the EU review. They argue that, once ethofumesate was re-registered, any company that had not participated in the review should have to submit a full registration dossier if it wished to continue marketing its existing products.
