Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations further amend the Plant Protection Products (Scotland) Regulations 2005 (S.S.I. 2005/331) (“the principal Regulations”) which implement in Scotland Council Directive 91/414/EEC concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market (O.J. No. L 230, 19.8.91, p.1 as read with corrigendum published in O.J. No. L 170, 25.6.92, p.40) (“the Directive”).

These Regulations amend the definition of “the Directive” in the principal Regulations so as to implement Commission Directives 2006/74/EC (O.J. No. L 235, 30.8.06, p.17), 2006/75/EC (O.J. No. L 248, 12.9.06, p.3), 2006/76/EC (O.J. No. L 263, 23.9.06, p.9) and 2006/85/EC (O.J. No. L 293, 24.10.06, p.3) which amend Annex 1 to the Directive (regulation 3).

These 4 Directives amend the specification of the active substance, chlorothalonil, and add 7 active substances to the list of active substances in Annex I of the Directive. The 4 Directives and the additional 7 active substances are therefore added to Schedule 1 to the principal Regulations by substituting the Schedule to these Regulations for Schedule 1 to the principal Regulations (regulation 4). In consequence the list of active substances which can be used in products capable of being approved under regulations 5 and 6 of the principal Regulations for placing on the market and use is extended accordingly.

Finally, the Regulations revoke the Plant Protection Products (Scotland) Amendment (No. 2) Regulations 2006 (S.S.I. 2006/449) which amended the principal Regulations and which amendment is superseded by these Regulations (regulation 5).

A full regulatory impact assessment has not been prepared in respect of these Regulations because they have no impact on the costs of business.
