(This note is not part of the Regulations.)

These Regulations amend the Plant Protection Products Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1995 which implement Council Directive 91/414/EEC concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market (“the Directive”), as amended by Commission Directive 93/71/EEC, Commission Directive 94/37/EEC and Commission Directive 94/79/EC, each of which amends Annexes II and III to the Directive.

No. L172, 22.7.95, p. 8), each of which amends Annexes II and III to the Directive, and of the annulment by the European Court of Justice of Council Directive 94/43/EEC, which established Annex VI to the Directive, in its judgement of 18th June 1996 in Case C-303/94 (European Parliament-v-Council of the European Union).
