EU candidate ai list in force
The list of 77 active ingredients that are classified as candidates for substitution (CfS) has been published in the EU Official Journal as Regulation 2015/408. The classification is based on hazardous properties. It means that approval applications for products containing such ais will be subject to a comparative assessment to check whether safer alternatives are available. The Regulation comes into force on April 1st. However, under transitional measures for implementing the new rules, they will not be imposed on applications for products that are submitted before August 1st 2015.
