CIS 95-1185 Pesticides - The Plant Protection Products Regulations 1995 [United Kingdom]
These Regulations implement in Great Britain various directives of the European Communities relating to plant protection products, of which 91/414/EEC (variously modified) is the most important. The sale of plant protection products is tied to an authorization system, whose rules have been made uniform within the European Economic Area (EEA). The inclusion of active substances (i.e. plant protection products) which were already on the market on 26 July 1993 are subject to a rolling review programme and they may be placed on the market until they are reviewed. Authorizations may also be granted for short periods in the event of an emergency or for purposes of testing. Provisions are made for data protection and confidentiality safeguards, as well as for the sharing of information between applicants and holders of previous authorizations of the same products in order to avoid duplication of animal tests. Requirements for labelling and packaging are stated. The Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 1994 (see CIS 95-23) shall not apply to products approved under these Regulations. In annex: information that may not be treated as confidential by the authorities from which authorization is requested; labelling requirements (in detail).
