EU lists potential low-risk agrochemical active ingredientsqrcode

The European Commission has issued a list of active ingredients approved under Directive 91/414/EEC that are expected to meet the low-risk criteria of Article 22 of the Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009.
 
Council Directive 91/414/EEC, which was replaced by the Regulation No 1107/2009, did not provide for the approval of active ingredients as low-risk. However, several ingredients previously approved under this Directive, in particular those substances which were subject to Commission Regulation (EC) No 2229/2004 concerning the fourth stage of the review programme, may potentially be identified as of low-risk.
 
This list is intended to assist Member States in achieving the objectives of Directive 2009/128/EC and specifically the implementation of the provisions of Article 12 and 14 of that Directive as well as the application of the general principles of integrated pest management. 
 
The list is without prejudice to the outcome of any forthcoming evaluations performed in accordance with the provisions of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 for the purpose of the renewal, amendment or review of the approval of an active substance. The inclusion in the list does not formally grant the low-risk status to an active ingredient and does not result in its listing amongst low-risk active substances in Part D of the Annex to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 540/2011 which can only follow a complete evaluation and decision under the Regulation.
 
Hence, plant protection products containing the ingredients on the list cannot be authorised as low-risk products and the specific legal provisions for low-risk products do not apply to them. However, Member States may use the list as considered appropriate to inform users and other stakeholders and to promote more effectively the use of plant protection products with substances of lower risk to contribute to the objectives of Directive 2009/128/EC.
