Abamectin (pesticide active substance); Pesticides and other agrochemicals (ICS 65.100)
Draft Commission Implementing Regulation concerning the approval of the active substance abamectin, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market, and amending the Annex to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 540/2011 (4 page(s), in English; 3 page(s), in English)
This draft Commission Implementing Regulation provides that the approval of the active substance abamectin is renewed with restriction to uses in permanent greenhouses, as defined by Art 3(27) of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009. EU Member States shall amend/withdraw authorisations for plant protection products containing abamectin as an active substance. The restricted 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 assessed and approved under Directive 91/414/EEC.
This decision only concerns the placing on the market of this substance and plant protection products containing it. Separate action is likely to be taken on MRLs and a separate notification will be made in accordance with SPS procedures.
