IQV wins EU metalaxyl case

Spanish agrochemical company Industrias Quimicas del Valles (IQV - Barcelona) has won a European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruling for the EU re-registration of the fungicide, metalaxyl. The ECJ has annulled the European Commission's 2003 decision not to include the active ingredient in Annex I of the EU agrochemical registration Directive (91/414). It agreed with the company's claim that its inability to submit a complete ai dossier before the specified deadline "was attributable, in part at least, to the contradictory behaviour of the competent authorities".
