Re-registration requirements for existing UK Authorisation Holders
The UK has left the EU, new rules from January 2021
The transition period after Brexit comes to an end this year.
This page provides important information for existing UK Authorisation holders for products containing active substances included on Annex I of Directive 91/414/EEC on 1 January 2009 or later, or approved under Regulation (EC) 1107/2009 since this came into force on 14 June 2011.
Since Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 came into force, replacing Directive 91/414/EEC, actives substances have been approved under this Regulation rather than added to Annex I of 91/414/EEC. Regulation (EU) No 540/2011 has transferred all active substances listed in Annex I to Directive 91/414/EEC to a list of substances deemed to have been approved under the Regulation.
The information on this page is provided to ensure that existing Authorisation holders are aware of the deadlines and requirements that they are obliged to meet in order to ensure that their existing product Authorisations are supported in the re-registration process.
