Active substance approvals: June 2017

Regulatory Update: 08/2017

Issued: 14th June 2017

Updating your authorisation

HSE does not routinely notify product authorisation holders where a change or update of a current authorisation is required because of a change by the EC to an approval of an active substance.  Authorisation holders are advised to check the EU Pesticides database where new or changes to active substance approvals and review reports are published.

Active substance approvals

At the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (SCoPAFF) it was agreed:

To approve under Regulation (EC) 1107/2009;

  • Propoxycarbazone and benzoic acid – Renewal of approval
  • Pendimethalin – Renewal of approval as a candidate for substitution
  • withdrawal of approval of the active substances tall oil pitch and tall oil crude

Propoxycarbazone, benzoic acid and pendimethalin

These substances were considered under the third stage of the renewal programme (governed by Commission Regulation 844/2012).  Authorisations for products containing these substances will need to be renewed in accordance with Article 43 of Regulation (EC) 1107/2009, with applications required by 30 November 2017.  For further information see  Guidance on UK Procedures for product renewal applications. 

Pendimethalin was also found to be a candidate for substitution pursuant to Article 24 of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009. It is a persistent and toxic substance in accordance with points and respectively, of Annex II to Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, given that the half-life in soil is greater than 120 days and the long-term no-observed effect concentration for freshwater organisms is less than 0.01 mg/L.
