COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2021/726

of 4 May 2021

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) No 540/2011 as regards the approval periods of the active substances Adoxophyes orana granulovirus and flutriafol

(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 the first paragraph of Article 17 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Part A of the Annex to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 540/2011 (2) sets out the active substances deemed to have been approved under Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009.

(2)

The approval period of the active substance flutriafol was extended from 31 May 2021 until 31 May 2024 by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/1266 (3) and additionally until 31 August 2024 by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/2007 (4). The approval period of the active substance Adoxophyes orana granulovirus was extended from 31 January 2023 until 31 January 2024 by Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/2007.

(3)

Applications for the renewal of the approval of the active substances concerned were submitted in accordance with Article 1 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 844/2012 (5). However, for the active substances Adoxophyes orana granulovirus and flutriafol, the applicants have confirmed that they no longer support the application for renewal of approval.

(4)

In view of the aim of the first paragraph of Article 17 of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, the extensions of the approval periods of those active substances, provided for by Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/2007, are no longer justified. It is therefore appropriate to provide that the approvals of Adoxophyes orana granulovirus and flutriafol expire at the dates they would expire without the extension.

(5)

Implementing Regulation (EU) No 540/2011 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

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

The Annex to Implementing Regulation (EU) No 540/2011 is amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the third day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 4 May 2021.

For the Commission

The President

Ursula VON DER LEYEN
