Reporting new information on authorisation

The authorisation holder has a legal obligation to report Ctgb immediately about indications of harmful or unacceptable effects concerning the specified plant protection product, the active substance or its metabolites, a safener, synergist or co-formulant.

Two types of notifications : immediate and annual notification

Authorised plant protection products are safe to use by following the instructions for use. The authorisation holder has a legal obligation to report Ctgb immediately about indications of harmful or unacceptable effects which suggest that the plant protection product (and its components) no longer complies with the legal authorisation criteria. The authorisation holder of a plant protection product has a legal obligation to notify the Ctgb annually about whether they possess information that the continued efficacy of the product is below expectations, about development of resistance and about any unexpected effect on plants, plant products or the environment.
