Tukes withdraws products from the Plant Protection Product Register because

  • the authorisation of the product expires, and the authorisation holder has not applied for renewal of the authorisation or
  • the authorisation holder applies for withdrawal of the product from the register even if the authorisation is still valid or
  • the authorisation of the product expires, and the renewal requirements are not met or
  • it is concluded in an EU-level review of the active substance that the active substance is not safe to use. In such a case, the products must be withdrawn from the register quite rapidly, as happened with, for example, the Rovral 75 WG with iprodione as the active substance.

Products to be withdrawn from the register

Products to be withdrawn from the Plant Protection Product Register in 2019–2020 can be found in the table below.   
It is mentioned in the table whether Tukes has given a deadline for ending the sale and distribution of the product. Usually this date is set at one year before the product is withdrawn from the register. Once the product has been withdrawn from the register, it must no longer be used.
