PART A

Only uses as herbicide may be authorised.

PART B

In assessing applications to authorise plant protection products containing amidosulfuron for uses other than meadows and pasture, Member States shall pay particular attention to the criteria in Article 4(1)(b), and shall ensure that any necessary data and information is provided before such an authorisation is granted.

For the implementation of the uniform principles of Annex VI, the conclusions of the review report on amidosulfuron, and in particular Appendices I and II thereof, as finalised in the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health on 22 January 2008 shall be taken into account.

In this overall assessment Member States must pay particular attention to:

  • the protection of groundwater due to a potential for groundwater contamination by some of the degradation products when it is applied in regions with vulnerable soil and/or climatic conditions,

  • the protection of aquatic plants.

In relation to these identified risks, risk mitigation measures, such as buffer zones, should be applied where appropriate.
