European Commission extends (again) the expiry date of several AIR2 active substances due to delays assessing the dossiers under Regulation 1107/2009. The Commission states in the text (Reg EU 2015/1885, of 20 October 2015): “Due to the fact that the assessment of the substances has been delayed for reasons beyond the control of the applicants, the approvals of those active substances are likely to expire before a decision has been taken on their renewal. It is therefore necessary to extend their approval periods.” Expiry dates of current approval are thus extended from 31 December 2015 (Regulation EU No 540/2011) to 30 June 2016, as per the text published on the 20th October 2015 (Reg EU 2015/1885). The following Active Substances under the AIR2 Renewal Project are impacted by the new timelines: 2,4-D, acibenzolar-s-methyl, amitrole, bentazone, cyhalofop butyl, diquat, esfenvalerate, famoxadone, flumioxazine, DPX KE 459 (flupyrsulfuron-methyl), glyphosate, iprovalicarb, isoproturon, lambda-cyhalothrin, metalaxyl-M, metsulfuron methyl, picolinafen, prosulfuron, pymetrozine, pyraflufen-ethyl, thiabendazole, thifensulfuron-methyl and triasulfuron.
