EU provisional approvals extended for two new ais

The European Commission has confirmed that EU member states may extend provisional approvals for Bayer CropScience's fungicide, fluopicolide, and Syngenta's herbicide, pinoxaden, for up to two years. The move was cleared by the EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health in July ( Agrow No 551, p 11). The active ingredients gained their first provisional approvals in 2005 in the UK, which is rapporteur member state for both ais. National provisional approvals are initially for three years, to allow for the completion of the full EU registration process. However, the authorities requested further data on the ais and more time is needed for the assessment, the Commission says.
