EU Commission does not re-approve the use of Oxasulfuron in plant protection products
This draft Commission Implementing Regulation provides that the approval of the active substance oxasulfuron is not renewed in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009. Existing authorised plant protection products containing oxasulfuron will be withdrawn from the market.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 and if so a separate notification will be made in accordance with SPS procedures.
