Plant protection products containing pymetrozine might be withdrawn from the market
This draft Commission Implementing Regulation
provides that the approval of the active substance pymetrozine
is not renewed in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009. If the draft Regulation will be adopted, existing authorised plant protection products containing pymetrozine
will be withdrawn from the market.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.
