Review of the regulatory process and procedures for Plant Protection Products in the UK

The key objective of the review was to improve the efficiency of the processes and procedures in order to increase the predictability in the delivery of regulatory decisions and ensure HSE fully recovers the costs of all work involved in the evaluation process.

HSE has issued a Regulatory Update outlining further details to the new procedures for processing application including a Guidance Document. The new processes and procedures were due to apply from 1 June 2016. In order to give applicants sufficient time to review the information, the implementation of the new process has been delayed until 29 June 2016.

From 29 June 2016:

  • Changes to the application streams and timelines will be introduced.
  • Changes to procedures relating to sifting will be made.
  • Changes to the procedures for requesting additional information will be made.
  • New application forms, reflecting the new application streams, will be available.
  • Technical equivalence and formulation comparisons will be processed under Article 33 of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009.

For advice on application procedures and further information on the registration of plant protection products, biocides or general chemicals, or any other regulatory issues, please contact JSC on +44 (0)1423 520245,
