Captan (pesticide active substance)
Draft Commission Implementing Regulation renewing the approval of the active substance captan 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
This draft Commission Implementing Regulation provides that the approval of the active substance captan is renewed with restriction to uses in greenhouses, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009. EU Member States shall amend/withdraw authorisations for plant protection products containing captan 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 will likely be taken on MRLs and a separate notification will be made in accordance with SPS procedures.
