EU approval conditions changed for two attractants

The European Commission has changed the approval conditions of two attractants to add a requirement for certain confirmatory data to be submitted in 2015 and 2016. The active ingredients are Z-13-hexadecen-11-yn-1-yl acetate and Z,Z,Z,Z-7,13,16,19-docosatetraen-1-yl isobutyrate. Information must be submitted by June 30th 2015 on the specification of the commercially manufactured technical material, including information on any relevant impurities. Further confirmatory data must be submitted by December 31st 2016 on: the exposure risk assessment for operators, workers, bystanders and non-target organisms; and the environmental fate and behaviour of the ai. The amendments are in response to the completion of an assessment by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). The two ais were originally re-registered in 2009 under accelerated procedures allowing “low-risk” ais to be approved before the EFSA had completed its final peer review.
