(3) Article 9e of the Directive provides that an additive of the same type may be provisionally authorised for a period of up to four years where, following an evaluation of the dossier referred to above, the conditions of Article 3a(b) to (e) of the Directive are satisfied and if it is reasonable to assume, in view of the available results, that the conditions laid down in Article 3a(a) are also met.
