COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2015/1165

of 15 July 2015

approving the active substance halauxifen-methyl, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market, and amending the Annex to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 540/2011

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 October 2009 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market and repealing Council Directives 79/117/EEC and 91/414/EEC (1), and in particular Article 13(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 7(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, the United Kingdom received on 20 September 2012 an application from Dow AgroSciences Limited for the approval of the active substance halauxifen-methyl. In accordance with Article 9(3) of that Regulation, the United Kingdom, as rapporteur Member State, notified the Commission on 2 November 2012 of the admissibility of the application.

(2)

On 20 December 2013 the rapporteur Member State submitted a draft assessment report to the Commission with a copy to the European Food Safety Authority (hereinafter ‘the Authority’), assessing whether that active substance can be expected to meet the approval criteria provided for in Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009.

(3)

The Authority complied with Article 12(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009. In accordance with Article 12(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, it requested that the applicant supply additional information to the Member States, the Commission and the Authority. The assessment of the additional information by the rapporteur Member State was submitted to the Authority in the format of an updated draft assessment report in October 2014.

(4)

On 21 November 2014 the Authority communicated to the applicant, the Member States and the Commission its conclusion on whether the active substance halauxifen-methyl can be expected to meet the approval criteria provided for in Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 (2). The Authority made its conclusion available to the public.

(5)

On 20 March 2015 the Commission presented to the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed the review report for halauxifen-methyl and a draft Regulation providing that halauxifen-methyl is approved.

(6)

The applicant was given the possibility to submit comments on the review report.

(7)

It has been established with respect to one or more representative uses of at least one plant protection product containing the active substance, and in particular the uses which were examined and detailed in the review report, that the approval criteria provided for in Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 are satisfied. Those approval criteria are therefore deemed to be satisfied. It is therefore appropriate to approve halauxifen-methyl.

(8)

In accordance with Article 13(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 in conjunction with Article 6 thereof and in the light of current scientific and technical knowledge, it is, however, necessary to include certain conditions and restrictions. It is, in particular, appropriate to require further confirmatory information.

(9)

In accordance with Article 13(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, the Annex to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 540/2011 (3) should be amended accordingly.

(10)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1
