Re-assessment of the plant protection product PROMAN – with the active ingredient metobromuron. Opinion of the Panel on Plant Protection Products of the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety
MetadataVis full innførsel
Proman is a broad spectrum selective herbicide for potatoes grown outdoors, containing the active substance metobromuron. VKM’s Panel on Plant Protection Products has previously discussed questions concerning Proman raised by The Norwegian Food Safety Authority, and stated its opinion in a report of 21. January 2015 (http://www.vkm.no/dav/3c64afe035.pdf). Following this report, The Norwegian Food Safety Authority turned down the application to register Proman as a plant protection product in Norway. The applicant filed a complaint on this decision, and the VKM Panel has been asked to reassess its previous opinion in light of the information given by the applicant in the complaint. The VKM Panel has discussed the arguments put forward in the complaint. The arguments did not change the Panel’s main conclusions in the original assessment. Some changes in the wording of the conclusions were however done, in order to put more emphasis on areas of uncertainty.
