Dear European Food Safety Authority,
In accordance with the EU legislation on pesticides, the Commission is not empowered to grant derogations to Member States. However, Article 53 of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 allows a Member State to authorise the placing on the market of a PPP for a period not exceeding 120 days and for limited and controlled use, if an emergency situation occurs which cannot be contained by any other reasonable means.
On April 17, 2020 Italian Health Ministry published a regulation that allows Chlropyrifos-m emergency use for 120 days in apple, pear, peach and nectarine against brown marmorated stink bug (Halyomorpha halys).
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
EU countries that have requested to use chlorpryrifos and/or chlorpyrifos-methyl for a period not exceeding 120 days and for limited and controlled use because an emergency situation has ocurred. We are interested in data for 2020 and 2021.
Louise Voller, Mie Obbekær.
