FRANCE – ANSES: Management of PPPs applications following the renewal of active substances approval

ANSES published on 18.10.2018 a memo describing the management of applications for PPPs authorisation following the renewal of active substances approval. This memo recalls the regulatory context of the active substances renewal in the framework of Regulation (EC) No. 1107/2009 and describes the consequences of the active substances renewal for the applications for PPPs authorisation before and after the active substance renewal, in the case of applications for new PPPs authorisation as well as in the case of PPPs already approved (Article 43).

Applications related to PPPs for which the authorisation is being renewed under article 43 are classified into three categories described in the memo: applications essentially administrative that may be processed during the process of authorisation renewal, applications that cannot be processed by ANSES during the period of evaluation of the authorisation renewal (frozen period) and applications that may be processed in parallel with the renewal authorisation, for which the evaluation cannot be finalised before  the renewal evaluation is complete.

Finally, the theoretical timelines for the renewal of PPP authorisations pursuant to Article 43 of Regulation (EC) No.1107/2009 and to the Guidance document on the Renewal of Authorisations is set out in appendix and details on the definition of the frozen period are given.
