  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On December 14, 2020, the European Commission published Commission Implementing Regulation 2020/2087 concerning the non-renewal of the active substance, mancozeb, in the Official Journal. The regulation enters into force 20 days later, which means that mancozeb will no longer be approved as an active substance at the EU level as of January 4, 2021. Member States have until July 4, 2021 to withdraw all authorizations for plant protection products containing mancozeb. The grace period for farmers to use up stocks of products with mancozeb ends January 4, 2022. Separately, the European Food Safety Authority announced the start of the review process for existing Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) for mancozeb on December 15, 2020.
