EU renews approval for four pesticide active ingredients
The approval of the active ingredients: bentazone (herbicide), silthiofam (fungicide), zoxamide (fungicide) and forchlorfenuron (plant growth regulator) is renewed as set out in Annex I in EU.

Expiration of approval for zoxamide and silthiofam is 30 June 2033, for bentazone is 31 May 2025, for forchlorfenuron is 31 May 2033.

For the implementation of the uniform principles, as referred to in Article 29(6) of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, the conclusions of the review report on these products, and in particular Appendices I and II thereof, shall be taken into account.

Bentazone

In their overall assessment Member States shall pay particular attention to:
- the technical specification,
- the protection of operators and workers,
- the risk to birds and mammals,
- the protection of groundwater, particularly but not only in drinking water protected areas, and shall carefully consider the timing of application, soil and/or climatic conditions.



Conditions of use shall include risk mitigation measures, where appropriate.

The applicant shall submit by 1 February 2019 to the Commission, the Member States and the Authority confirmatory information as regards Level 2/3 tests as currently indicated in the OECD Conceptual Framework investigating the potential for endocrine-mediated effects of bentazone.

Silthiofam

Member States shall pay particular attention to:
- the protection of operators,
- the protection of groundwater in vulnerable regions,
- the protection of birds, mammals and earthworms.

Conditions of use shall include risk mitigation measures, where appropriate.

The applicant shall submit to the Commission, the Member States and the Authority confirmatory information as regards:
1. the effect of water treatment processes on the nature of residues present in surface and groundwater, when surface water or groundwater are abstracted for drinking water;
2. the relevance of the metabolites M2 and M6 taking into account any relevant classification for silthiofam in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2), in particular as reprotoxic category 2.

The applicant shall submit the information mentioned in point (1) within two years after a guidance document on evaluation of the effect of water treatment processes on the nature of residues present in surface and groundwater is made public by the Commission and the information requested under point (2) within one year after the publication in the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) webpage of the opinion adopted by the Committee for risk assessment of the ECHA in accordance with Article 37(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 with respect to silthiofam.

Zoxamide

Member States shall pay particular attention to:
- the protection of groundwater from metabolite RH-141455,
- the protection of bees, aquatic organisms and earthworms.

Conditions of use shall include risk mitigation measures, where appropriate.

The applicant shall submit to the Commission, the Member States and the Authority confirmatory information as regards the effect of water treatment processes on the nature of residues present in drinking water within two years of a guidance document on evaluation of the effect of water treatment processes on the nature of residues present in surface and groundwater is made public by the Commission.

Forchlorfenuron

Member States shall pay particular attention to:
- the risk to consumers as regards the potential risk from metabolites in fruit crops with edible peels.

Conditions of use shall include risk mitigation measures, where appropriate.
