European Union Pesticide Renewal Monitor

What is the EU Pesticide Renewal Monitor?

In the European Union, all active ingredients undergo periodic reevaluation, as laid out in Regulation (EC) No. 1107/2009. The reevaluation process typically follows the scheme indicated in the figure below.

Schematic overview of the EU reevaluation process, timelines are indicative as outlined in Regulation (EC) No. 1107/2009. Steps can take longer than indicated.

The European Union (EU) Pesticide Renewal Monitor is a document that provides an overview of active ingredients that are currently undergoing or are scheduled for the periodic active ingredient renewal in the European Union and it is prepared based on publicly available information. It lists active ingredients that have expired or are expected to expire, at the time of publication.

Please note that the renewal process relates to the approval of active ingredients used in the EU market. It is lengthy and unpredictable. Only final, published Regulations are definitive. Renewal is a separate process to the EU Maximum Residue Limit (MRL) and Import Tolerance setting, change or removal, which typically happens after non-renewal has been finalized, and is governed by specific legislation.
