Future GB pesticide approval regulation update

From January 1, 2021, a new independent pesticides regulatory regime will operate in Great Britain (GB). GB will take responsibility for its own decisions using its own rules, according to pesticide regulator the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

Key points concerning pesticide approvals are:

  • All existing active substance approvals, PPP authorisations and MRLs will continue to be valid in GB.
  • Existing PPP authorisations remain valid until their current expiry date.
  • Active substance approvals due to expire before December 2023 will be extended for three years to allow time for the necessary evaluation work.

In terms of the future, HSE is developing a GB active substance review programme, but there are no details yet of what substances are being reviewed and when.

 

HSE says: “A GB programme for the review of the safety of active substances is being developed and HSE will retain the power to review active substance approvals at any time, should new evidence identify any concerns to human health or the environment.”
