The Chemical Regulations Directorate has provided guidance on the use of Emergency Authorisations under the latest regulations. These will be essential to maintain the ability to apply Asulam during the period between the end of the use-up period on 31 December 2012 and the date that Asulam is re-registered for use. Re-registration will not take place until 2016, at the earliest.
A key development is the removal in the latest regulations of the need for the requirement for the Emergency Authorisation to have been 'unforeseen'.
The advice from CRD can be viewed in the letter sent to UPL, today.
