EU extends provisional approvals for two ais

The European Commission has confirmed that EU member states may extend provisional approvals by up to two years for BASF/ Nihon Nohyaku’s insecticide, metaflumizone, and Cheminova’s insecticide, gamma-cyhalothrin. The move was cleared by the EU regulatory committee in October ( Agrow No 579, p 11). Provisional approvals initially last for three years to allow for the full EU registration process to be completed. However, additional data were requested and more time is needed to conclude the evaluations, the Commission says. BASF originally submitted its metaflumizone application in March 2005, while former Cheminova joint venture Pytech applied for gamma-cyhalothrin in August 2001.
