EU issues draft list of agchem candidates for substitution

The European Commission has issued a draft list of 77 active ingredients that are to be classified as candidates for substitution (CfS). Under the classification, approval applications for products containing such ais would be subject to a comparative assessment (CA) to check whether safer alternatives were available. The proposed list was agreed by the EU regulatory committee in January. The list will have no impact on existing approvals or applications in process, the Commission stresses. It intends that, from August 1st 2015, new applications for products containing CfS ais will have to go through the CA procedure.
