Commission Directive 2010/58/EU

of 23 August 2010

amending Council Directive 91/414/EEC as regards an extension of the use of the active substance iprodione

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Directive 91/414/EEC of 15 July 1991 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market(1), and in particular the second indent of the second subparagraph of Article 6(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) By Commission Directive 2003/31/EC(2) iprodione was included as active substance in Annex I to Directive 91/414/EEC.

(2) When applying for the inclusion of iprodione its sole notifier Bayer submitted data on uses as fungicide which supported the overall conclusion that it may be expected that plant protection products containing iprodione will fulfil the safety requirements laid down in Article 5(1)(a) and (b) of Directive 91/414/EEC.

(3) In addition to that use, another notifier Devgen has applied for an amendment to allow iprodione to be used as nematicide. In order to support such an extension of the use, the notifier Devgen submitted additional information.

(4) France has evaluated the information submitted and informed the Commission on 12 January 2010 about its conclusions that the requested extension of use does not cause any risks in addition to those already taken into account in the specific provisions for iprodione in Annex I to Directive 91/414/EEC and in the Commission review report for that substance. In particular, France has prepared several addenda to the assessment report in the concerned areas of the risk assessment, whose conclusions confirm the acceptability of such extension of use.

(5) Therefore, it is justified to modify the specific provisions for iprodione.

(6) It is therefore appropriate to amend Directive 91/414/EEC accordingly.

(7) The measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,

Only uses as fungicide and nematicide may be authorised.

For the implementation of the uniform principles of Annex VI, the conclusions of the review report on iprodione, and in particular Appendices I and II thereof, as finalised in the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health on 3 December 2002 shall be taken into account. In this overall assessment, Member States:

  • should pay particular attention to the potential for groundwater contamination when the active substance is applied at high use rates (in particular use in turf) on acidic soils (pH below 6) under vulnerable climatic conditions,

  • must carefully consider the risk to aquatic invertebrates if the active substance is applied directly adjacent to surface waters. Risk mitigation measures should be applied, where appropriate.’
