FRANCE: Update of the classification of hazardous pesticide products further to new ATP (Adaptations to Technical Progress)

In accordance with CLP Regulation No. 1272/2008, any phytopharmaceutical product with an authorisation or a parallel trade permit must be classified by manufacturers. However, the classification of the product may change as a result of an updated classification of one of its constituents.

When the harmonised classification and labelling of hazardous substances is updated through an Adaptation to Technical Progress (ATP), the holder of  the authorisation or parallel trade permit must notify ANSES no later than 2 months before the application date of the regulation related to the new adaptation to technical progress of the CLP.

The products classified and labelled in accordance with the new ATP will be put on the market on the date of application of the aforementioned regulation. The end of sale and the end of use of the stocks of products will be set respectively on 6 months and 18 months following the application date of the regulation.

FRANCE: Increase of the tax on the sale of Plant Protection Products

Further to the publication of the Order of 27 February 2020 repealing the Order of 09 March 2016, the rate of the tax applied to the sale of plant protection products is increased. Thus, for plant protection products which were the subject of an Authorisation or a parallel trade permit on 01 January of the tax year, the tax rate is increased from 0.2% to 0.9% of sales revenues for conventional products and is maintained at 0.1% for the products of the official biocontrol list.

This increase is the result of the raising of the rate ceiling set by the law 2019-1446 for the 2020 social security financing.

This tax is assigned to ANSES to finance the phytopharmacovigilance as well as the compensation fund for victims of pesticides.
