This draft Commission Implementing Regulation provides that the approval of the active substance methiocarb is not renewed in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009. Existing authorised plant protection products containing methiocarb will be withdrawn from the market.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. Following non‑approval and the expiry of all grace periods for stocks of products containing this substance, separate action may be taken on MRLs and a separate notification will be made in accordance with SPS procedures.
