ANSES published a memo on grace periods granted by ANSES and label update deadlines in the event of withdrawal, modification or non-renewal of an authorisation or a parallel trade permit for plant protection products.
It is reminded that the grace periods and delays of label update correspond to different and uncorrelated notions.
Regarding grace periods, as a reminder:
– a lack of indication of grace periods in a decision means that no delay has been granted;
– when grace periods are granted, they are mentioned in the decision and cannot exceed 6 months for the sales and distribution and 12 additional months for storage and use.
Concerning the timelines for label update, as a reminder:
– an absence of indication concerning the timeline to update the labels in a decision means that the default time limits apply: 6 months for the label update (or 12 months in case of addition of new uses or lighter precautions of use) and an additional 12 months for the use of stocks with the old labelling;
– Authorisation decisions may include different deadlines (shorter or longer).
Délais de grâce octroyés par l’Anses et délais de mise à jour des étiquettes en cas de retrait, de modification ou de non-renouvellement d’une autorisation de mise sur le marché (AMM) ou d’un permis de commerce parallèle de produits phytopharmaceutiques (in French)
