When approval for use of glyphosate was extended for 18 months last June, one of the conditions was that formulations of the active which included POE-tallowamine would be banned.

 

There are currently 109 plant protection products which contain glyphosate and POE-tallowamine authorised in the UK, according to CRD. Ninety-nine of these product authorisations have the following expiry dates:

 

  • For sale and distribution: on or before June 30, 2017
  • For disposal, storage and use: on or before June 30, 2018

 

A further 10 products currently expire at a later date.

 

The 99 products containing glyphosate and POE-tallowamines which currently expire in June 2017 and June 2018 or earlier will be allowed to expire on their current expiry dates. A separate withdrawal notice will not be published for these products, said CRD.

 

For the remaining 10 products, a withdrawal notice has been issued, giving an expiry date of June 30, 2017 for sale and distribution and June 30, 2018 for disposal, storage and use.
