Follow up on admissibility of use restrictions set by German UBA for pesticide authorisation

Date: 29 January 2020

The administrative court of Braunschweig decided on non-compatibility of Biodiversity use restrictions required by the Federal Environment Agency (UBA) with applicable law last year. We already reported on this issue in our SCC Newsletter Vol. 16 No. 4 and under current news on 25 October 2019.

The following information is now available: UBA has started to review and replace all use restrictions concerning biodiversity. The Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) is currently examining UBA's new procurement practice, both professionally and legally.
