Updated draft EU list of prohibited plant protection product and adjuvant product co-formulants

February 06, 2020

The European Commission has published an updated draft annex amending Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, which lists plant protection product and adjuvant product co-formulants that are expected to be prohibited in the EU after the annex is approved. Once the amendment enters into force, companies will have a maximum of two years and three months to complete reformulation and registration of replacement products for sale that do not contain the prohibited substances. However, this is a maximum time period as Member States can cancel the authorisations of the co-formulant-containing products earlier, once the amendment enters into force.

The draft annex is open to public comment via the European Commission’s website until 13 February 2020.

How TSG can help

To ensure a seamless transition and retain compliant plant protection products on the market, it is imperative that manufacturers of formulations containing these prohibited co-formulants complete reformulation efforts swiftly and submit revised dossiers as soon as possible if they have not already done so.

TSG Consulting is on hand to assist in preparing these regulatory dossiers, either to amend the registration of a product that has been reformulated to no longer contain prohibited co-formulants, or to obtain the registration of new plant protection products that do not contain any of the unacceptable co-formulants.
