Regulatory Update 16/2015
Issued:17th August 2015

Updating your authorisation

Please note that HSE does not directly notify product authorisation holders where a change or update of current authorisation is required because of change by the EC to an approval of an active substance.

Authorisation holders have an obligation under Regulation (EC) 1107/2009 to renew their registration (relevant to substances falling under Article 80 transitional measures of the Regulation). Details of how to do this are given on the post-inclusion deadline and re-registration page of our website.

Active substance approvals

At the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (SCoPAFF) on 14 July 2015 it was agreed to approve under Regulation (EC) 1107/2009:

Fructose approval

This substance was approved as a basic substance for an unlimited period according to the criteria under Article 23 of Regulation (EC) 1107/2009.

Florasulam approval

This substance was considered under the second stage of the renewal programme (governed by Commission Regulation 1141/2010). Also, authorisations for products containing this substance will need to be renewed in accordance with Article 43 of Regulation (EC) 1107/2009. Further information on renewing authorisations will be published on CRD’s website in due course.

Other information

When various draft documents are published (eg data lists, review reports and approval regulations) we will update the ‘table of recent deadlines’ (for substances with extant CRD step 2 re-registration deadlines) if required. You should check this table on a regular basis to determine if, for example, lists of protected studies are now available. Also, please note amendments made to the conditions of approval, review reports or endpoints of the following substances:

Bacillus subtilis Strain QST 713

PART A of the 'Specific provisions' of the implementing regulation, is amended as follows:

‘Only uses as fungicide and bactericide may be authorised.’
