Step 4: Evaluation
Within 12 months of the application submission, HSE will evaluate the information and prepare a draft assessment report (DAR). The DAR will include whether the active substance meets the approval criteria provided in Article 4 of retained Regulation 1107/2009 (legislation.gov.uk website).
If HSE require additional studies or information required, a time period will be set for you to supply the information. This will be a maximum of 6 months. The evaluation period will be extended for HSE to evaluate the additional information.
HSE charges a fee for the evaluation.
