EU amends 91/414 proposals

The European Commission has amended its proposed revision of the EU agrochemical registration Directive (91/414) in response to the large number of changes put forward by the European Parliament last year (Agrow No 530, p 8). The new proposal represents a mixed result for the crop protection industry. The Commission has rejected parliamentary calls to expand the range of hazard-based criteria used in pesticide assessments, a move welcomed by the European Crop Protection Association (ECPA). However, it also rejects a parliamentary amendment that would have maintained the provisional approval system for new active ingredients.
