Statutory Rules of Northern Ireland

Pesticides

Plant Protection Products (Amendment No 2) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2008

Made

15th December 2008

Coming into operation

12th January 2009

The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development is a Department designated for the purposes of section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972(1) as read with paragraph 1A of Schedule 2 to that Act, in relation to the common agricultural policy of the European Community(2), and to measures in the veterinary and phytosanitary fields for the protection of public health(3).

These Regulations make provision for a purpose mentioned in that section and it appears to the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development that it is expedient for the reference to Council Directive 91/414/EEC concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market(4), to be construed as a reference to that Directive as amended from time to time.

The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development makes the following Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by that section.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Plant Protection Products Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2005 (S.R. 2005 No. 526) (“the principal Regulations”) which implement in Northern Ireland Council Directive 91/414/EEC (O.J. No. L230, 19.8.91, p1) to be read with the Corrigenda published in O.J. No. L170, 25.6.92, p. 40) concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market (“the Directive”), as amended.

A new definition of the Directive is substituted to the effect that references to the Directive are references to it as amended from time to time (regulation 2(2)). Schedule 1 to the principal Regulations, which sets out the instruments that amend the Directive, is revoked (regulation 2(3)). Regulation 3 revokes the Plant Protection Products (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2008, the main purpose of which was to amend the definition of “the Directive” in the principal Regulations so as to implement specified Commission Directives.

Amendments to the Directive may be found at www.dardni.gov.uk/index/fisheries-farming-and-food/pesticides-use-and-regulation/pesticide-roles-and-responsibilities/dard-pesticide-legislation.htm , and a list of substances approved under the Directive is available on the website of the Pesticide Safety Directorate at www.pesticides.gov.uk/approvals.asp?id=871
