EU nears end of second-round review ais:

The EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health has voted for the re-registration of the insecticide/acaricide, pirimiphos-methyl, and the withdrawal of the insecticides, benfuracarb and methomyl. The phase-out timetable for the latter two active ingredients will be set once the European Commission has formally adopted the decisions. The ais were among the last in the second round of the EU review of existing ais. There is now just one second-round ai, the nematicide, 1,3 dichloropropene, awaiting a re-registration decision. The Commission proposal for the withdrawal of the ai is due to be considered by the Committee this month.
