Adapting authorisations to new regulatory requirements

News 4/14/2014

From 15 June 2015, the label on all plant protection products must comply with the requirements in the EU Regulations concerning Plant Protection Products, PPP. The Swedish Chemicals Agency will be requesting a classification according to CLP unless the authorisation holder of a plant protection product has previously submitted that data.

From 15 June 2015, all plant protection products must be labelled as set out in the EU Regulation on plant protection products ((EC) No 1107/2009) and the EU Regulation on the labelling of plant protection products ((EU) No 547/2011). This means that the label must contain the classification according to CLP Regulation ((EC) No 1272/2008). The Swedish Chemicals Agency will request this information, unless the holder of a plant protection has previously submitted it.

The information that has to be provided on the label of a plant protection product must also be included in the authorisation of the product.

The Swedish Chemicals Agency will, where possible, include CLP and other regulatory requirements when considering an application of a PPP.

The information that must be provided in an authorisation is set out in the EU Regulation on Plant Protection Products. Authorisations according to older legislation do not contain all of these details, such as data on dose and interval between applications. The Swedish Chemicals Agency will therefore include these details in the authorisation, in addition to the information about CLP. The detailed conditions will not be disadvantageous to the authorisation holder.

A PPP with an old label may not be placed on the market after 14 June 2015.
