The approval of active substances as well as the authorisation of plant protection products containing these active substances, has undergone many convolutions in Europe. For the benefit of our clients, SCC has been following these intricacies since more than 30 years. Initially under Directive 91/414 and then Regulation 1107/2009, we have guided applicants through constantly changing procedures established by this legislation, such as the Annex I inclusion and renewal processes as well as zonal evaluations of products.
On behalf of our clients, our experts have carefully evaluated and managed the new data requirements as laid down in Regulations 283/2013 and Regulation 284/2013. In light of further significant changes, we have been supporting our customers with regard to the detailed requirements by EFSA for literature search and the issues related to endocrine disrupting properties or the bee Guidance Document, to name but a few.
The advent of Integrated Pest Management, mandatory since 2014, became by far one of the key milestones in the development of the European regulatory landscape, as it not only applies to classical, new biological or low risk active substances, but also pledges to become the most promising way into the future European market for all of them.
