Draft regulation concerning non-renewal of approval of iprodione
A draft Regulation (SANTE/10626/2017) is currently under discussion concerning non-renewal of approval of iprodione active substance under Regulation No 1107/2009 and amending Regulation No 540/2011.
On 8 June 2016, EFSA communicated to Commission its conclusion on whether iprodione can be expected to meet the approval criteria provided for in Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009.
The Authority concluded that there is a high potential for the representative uses assessed to result in groundwater exposure above the parametric drinking water limit of 0.1µg/l by the relevant metabolites of iprodione.
In addition, the Authority also concluded that there is a high long-term risk to aquatic organisms.
Furthermore, in respect of one metabolite, found as a residue in plants and as an impurity in the technical material, Authority concluded that the genotoxic potential cannot be excluded.
Currently , iprodione is a substance widely used in France. It is authorized on the following crops:
– Vegetable crops: Garlic, Asparagus, Eggplant, Carrot, Cabbage, Cucumber, Courgette, Shallot, Strawberry, Bean, Lettuce, Lentil, Melon, Onion, Bell pepper, Tomato, PPAM
