EU approval conditions to change for two attractants

Proposals to amend the EU approval conditions for two active ingredients have been voted through by the EU Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed.  They are the attractants, Z-13-hexadecen-11-yn-1-yl acetate and Z,Z,Z,Z-7,13,16,19-docosatetraen-1-yl isobutyrate. The amendments would add the requirement to submit further data within two years to confirm certain aspects of the risk assessments. They were proposed by the European Commission in response to an assessment by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). The two ais were re-registered in 2009 under accelerated procedures allowing “low-risk” ais to be approved before the EFSA had completed its final peer review. As a result of the EFSA’s final reports, completed by December 2013, the Commission is to request further confirmatory data for each ai on: the specification of the commercially manufactured technical material; the exposure risk assessment for operators, workers, bystanders, and non-target organisms; and environmental fate and behaviour. The amendments require publication in the EU Official Journal before coming into force.
