EU use restrictions applied to triclopyr

EU member states have been instructed to implement a new use restriction on the herbicide, triclopyr, that will set a maximum total application per year of 480 g ai/ha. National authorities must amend or withdraw existing authorisations by September 19th 2015, and can allow a grace period to use up existing stocks by September 19th 2016. The European Commission decided on the measure after an assessment of additional data required under the conditions of the active ingredient’s original EU approval. The evaluation concluded that the data did not resolve concerns over the risk to birds and mammals, and that the new restriction was necessary.
