Further re-applications for EU ai approval
More companies have resubmitted applications for EU re-registration of active ingredients. Bayer CropScience has re-applied for the herbicides, diclofop and metosulam, to France as rapporteur member state; BASF for the herbicide, quinmerac, to the UK; Dow AgroSciences for the herbicide, oryzalin, to France; and Chimac-Agriphar for the fungicide, dodine, to Portugal. All five ais were in the third round of the EU review of existing ais. Their EU assessments have not yet been completed but have identified data gaps. In agreement with the European Commission, the companies opted to temporarily withdraw these ais from the EU review until they resubmitted the applications with additional data.
