EU Drafts commission renewing the approval of the active substance methoxyfenozide

This draft Commission Implementing Regulation provides that the approval of the active substance methoxyfenozide is renewed in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 under restricted conditions and for a period of 7 years. Existing authorised plant protection products containing methoxyfenozide will have to be re-authorised in accordance with the proposed restrictions. The renewal of 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 regulation 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.
