Whereas:

(1)

Dow AgroSciences Ltd and Dow AgroSciences Europe Ltd, based in the United Kingdom, are representatives in the Union of respectively Dow AgroSciences LLC and Mycogen Seeds for genetically modified food and feed covered by Commission Decision 2007/703/EC (2) and Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2017/2452 (3) and (EU) 2018/1109 (4). For the authorisations under those decisions, Pioneer Overseas Corporation, based in Belgium, is representative in the Union of Pioneer Hi-Bred International Inc.

(2)

In the context of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, Dow AgroSciences Europe requested the Commission, by letter dated 13 September 2018, to change its representative for the genetically modified food and feed concerned, by having Dow AgroSciences Distribution S.A.S., based in France, as representative, instead of Dow AgroSciences Ltd and Dow AgroSciences Europe Ltd By letter dated 12 October 2018, Dow AgroSciences LLC clarified that Dow AgroSciences Europe, Dow AgroSciences Ltd and Dow AgroSciences Europe Ltd, are the same legal entity. By letter dated 7 September 2018, Dow AgroSciences Distribution S.A.S confirmed its agreement with the transfer of representative.

(3)

The requested changes are purely administrative in nature and therefore do not entail a new assessment of the products concerned. The same applies as regards the addressees of the authorisation decisions concerned, which should also be adapted accordingly.

(4)

Decision 2007/703/EC and Implementing Decisions (EU) 2017/2452 and (EU) 2018/1109 should therefore be amended accordingly.
