European Commission allocates
the evaluation of pesticide active substances to a rapporteur Member State and to a co-rapporteur Member State for the purposes of the renewal procedure. Since the evaluation of active substances whose approval expires between 1 January 2022 and 31 December 2024 has not yet been allocated to a Member State or to a co-rapporteur Member State, it is appropriate to proceed to such allocation.
In view of the length of the evaluation process for active substances and the recent notification by the United Kingdom pursuant to Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union, it is necessary to re-allocate the evaluation of the active substances listed in Part B of the Annex to Implementing Regulation (EU) No 686/2012 for which the United Kingdom is the rapporteur Member State or the co-rapporteur Member State, and for which no supplementary dossier has yet been submitted. The active substances concerned are aluminium ammonium sulphate, azoxystrobin, bupirimate, carbetamide, chlormequat, ethylene, fenbuconazole, fluopicolide, fluquinconazole, flutriafol, garlic extract, metazachlor, myclobutanil, paclobutrazol, pepper, plant oils/citronella oil, propaquizafop, quizalofop-p-ethyl, quizalofop-p-tefuryl, tri-allate and urea.
That allocation should be made in such a way that a balance is achieved as regards the distribution of the responsibilities and the work between Member States.
