EU Drafts Commission Implementing Regulation concerning the non-renewal of approval of certain active substances in Pesticides

This draft Commission Implementing Regulation provides that the approval of the active substance etoxazole and  Quinoxyfen is not renewed in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009. Existing authorised plant protection products containing etoxazole will be withdrawn from the market. The non-approval is based on the first evaluation of the substance for use as a pesticide active substance in the EU under Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009. The substance was formerly approved under Directive 91/414/ EEC. This decision only concerns the placing on the market of this substance and does not affect the Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) for residues of the concerned pesticide. However, following non-approval, separate action may be taken on MRLs. Any subsequent action on MRLs will be subject to notification under the SPS procedure.
