Brexit

The consequences of the Brexit are far-reaching. The Ctgb has specified these consequences for plant protection products and for biocidal products.

On 13 November 2018 the EU and UK reached anĀ agreement on Brexit. It was endorsed by the UK government and the 27 remaining EU member states. The UK parliament has accepted this agreement. As a result, the date of Brexit was set for 31 January 2020.

What does this mean for applications and authorisations for plant protection products and biocidal products? Various plant protection products and biocidal products derive their authorisations from assessments preformed by another EU member state. The Ctgb has specified these consequences for plant protection products and for biocidal products.

Of course, it is also possible that an applicant has submitted an application in the UK that is dependent on an authorisation in the Netherlands or elsewhere in the EU. For these situations refer to the UK goverment site on 'Regulating pesticides if there's no Brexit deal'.
