Re-application for EU approval of furfural
A re-application for EU approval of the fungicide/nematicide, furfural, has been submitted by consultant ToXcel on behalf of the South African company, Illovo Sugar. The UK is rapporteur member state for the active ingredient's evaluation. The submission has been made under procedures for ais that have been unsuccessful so far in gaining a listing on Annex I of the EU agrochemical registration Directive (91/414). Furfural was one of 320 ais withdrawn in 2003 because they were not supported through the EU review of existing ais ( Agrow No 414, p 14).
