1107/2009 rules to extend to EEA nations

10. November 2014

The European Commission has proposed to incorporate into the European Economic Area (EEA) Regulation 1107/2009 (together with all the implementing Regulations covering lists of approved active substances, data requirements for active substances and products, labelling, uniform principles for evaluations and authorisations, and renewal of approvals). The EEA is a trade agreement with Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway; these countries will now be enabled to join the geographic product approval zones and take part in evaluations of active substances. The Commission’s proposal has been cleared by the EU Competition Ministers, allowing it to be taken for approval to the EEA committee. Link
