Methomyl gains EU re-registration at second go
DuPont has succeeded in its second attempt to gain EU re-registration of the insecticide, methomyl. The company resubmitted its application for the active ingredient after the EU authorities decided not to re-register methomyl in 2007 ( Agrow No 530, p 9). The EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health voted in favour of re-registration at its meeting in June. Once confirmed by the European Commission, methomyl will be added to Annex I of the EU agrochemical registration Directive (91/414).
