Long term arrangements for extension of use (LTAEU): pesticide products

The Long Term Arrangements for Extension of Use (LTAEU) were fully withdrawn on 31 December 2020.

They were previously used to allow plant protection products to be used on listed minor crops.

You will need to make a fully supported application for an Extension of Authorisation for Minor Use (EAMU) to support any new non-edible use formerly covered by the LTAEU. Your application must be in line with our guidance and standard evaluation procedures apply.

Existing EAMUs (including former edible and non-edible LTAEU uses) need to be fully supported at product renewal if the use or uses are to continue. Applications are required to demonstrate that all uses are acceptable using modern risk assessment standards. This may require some changes to the good agricultural practice (GAP) and we advise you to liaise with the authorisation holder before submitting an application.

The withdrawal process for non-edible uses and transfer to specific Extensions of Authorisation for Minor Use (EAMUs) was described in Regulatory Update 1/2008 and the process was detailed in a procedures document.
