Considerable efforts are made to make information contained within liaison as accurate as possible, however you should satisfy yourself as to the suitability of this information for your intended purpose. No warranty as to fitness for purpose shall be implied. Fera Science Ltd shall have neither liability nor responsibility to any person or organisation with respect to any loss, damage, or incident arising from the use or misuse of this information. Omission of a product does not necessarily mean that it is not approved and available for use. No endorsement of products is intended, nor is criticism of unnamed products implied.

The database has been compiled from official sources, including Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 February 2005 on maximum residue levels of pesticides in or on food and feed of plant and animal origin and its amendments. This has been augmented with data from manufacturers' and distributors' product labels and manuals of pesticides approved under the Control of Pesticide Regulations (as amended) 1986 and the Plant Protection Products Regulations under Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, which repealed and replaced Council Directive 91/414/EEC on 14 June 2011. Data on Extensions of Authorisation for minor uses have been compiled directly from official documents supplied by the Chemicals Regulation Directorate (CRD).

Extensions of Authorisation for minor use (EAMUs) are granted only in relation to a particular product for specific uses. It is an offence to use an approved product in a manner that does not comply with the specific conditions of approval that are laid down in the statutory EAMU document. To demonstrate compliance with such terms, a user must have read and understood the document before commencing spraying operations. Possession of a current EAMU document is generally taken as part of the "burden of proof" of this requirement. Only the original EAMU document, as issued by the Chemicals Regulation Directorate (CRD) and available in liaison, constitutes a valid legal document

No reliance should be placed on an EAMU by a user in relation to products which, although similar to an approved product, are not expressly covered by the EAMU.

Before handling, storing or using a pesticide always read the label and if in doubt, consult your BASIS expert.
