penflufen (pesticide active substance)
Draft Commission Implementing Regulation amending Implementing Regulation (EU) No 540/2011 as regards the conditions of approval of the active substance penflufen and repealing Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/185 (4 page(s), in English; 3 page(s), in English)
This draft Commission Implementing Regulation provides that the approval conditions of the active substance penflufen are amended in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 based on the absence of submission of the confirmatory data as requested in Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1031/2013 of 24 October 2013, approving the active substance penflufen for use in the EU. Existing authorised plant protection products containing penflufen will be reviewed in accordance with the restriction set in this act.
This decision however only concerns the placing on the market of this substance. Following restriction of the approval and the consequent expiry of all grace periods for stocks of products, separate legal action will likely be taken on Maximum Residue Levels and a separate notification will be made in accordance with SPS procedures in due time.
