1107 Vademecum 2019

The 6th edition of the 1107 Vademecum has become a bit heavier: it now includes the “missing chapter” on classification. Classification of pesticide substances is becoming an increasingly crucial factor in the approval and renewal process. The Vademecum now not only explains the process of classification, but also provides a new table that shows you every phase of classification (EFSA’s proposals, intentions from Member States notified to ECHA, upcoming submissions of CLH proposals, the actual proposals, in each phase of the classification process, and the final adopted RAC opinions and published classifications.

In addition to those extra pages, and responding to popular request, the font size of the (fully amended and updated) legal texts is slightly increased, to accommodate the more senior regulatory experts, even when they forgot their reading glasses. Readability comes at the price of several extra pages…

Regulation 1107/2009

The 2019 edition of the 1107 Vademecum contains as always the complete text of the Regulation, updated with footnotes to all new and updated Guidance Documents, with editorial notes, and with the latest amendments (Endocrine criteria) and draft changes to the text, including their procedural status: the (agreed & final) amendments from the Fertiliser Regulation the (agreed & final) amendments from the “Transparency Regulation”, and other relevant articles from the General Foodlaw.

The 1107 Vademecum describes the European decision process, the voting system (with and without the consequences of Brexit) and the comitology rules, and clarifies not only the structure of dossiers, assessment reports, EFSA reports and review/renewal reports, but explains where to find them in the different databases of EFSA and the Commission.

All relevant Guidance Documents are listed by number, with descriptions of their content and date of entry into force, and can be found via the clear overview tables, or via the footnotes in the legal text of the Regulation.

You can find the status of each pending or approved substance in one table, with references to application and submission deadlines, dates of Assessment Reports, public consultations, and all published EFSA peer review report, allowing you to estimate for any substance the remaining time until a decision for renewal. Information on the different steps in the process of classification will give further insight in the future prospects of each substance. And new in the 2019 edition: you can now see which companies are involved directly in the approval or renewal process, either individually or in task forces.


Since most regulatory resources are focused on the renewal of substances, and on the subsequent renewal of product authorisations at national level, the 1107 Vademecum also contains the full text of the Renewal Regulation for AIR 3, 4 and 5, including the new text on “stop-the-clock” rules for assessing endocrine properties, and the most recent version of the “Article 43” Guidance Document.


The 1107 Vademecum offers the complete consolidated text of the Residues Regulation, and information on the structure of the Regulation, the procedures, and enforcement. Of course you will find an updated overview of all current Residue Guidance Documents as well.

PIC Regulation

The number of non-approved substances keeps growing, and so does the list of substances subject to the “PIC Regulation”. For companies importing or exporting substances that are (EU-) PIC-listed, the 1107 Vademecum provides an overview of the procedures and an overview of all substances for which specific legal obligations apply.

Classification: the CLP Regulation

The 2019 edition of the Vademecum now contains all crucial information on classification. You will find the procedures and players explained, but also reference lists that will provide you with the link between classification categories, H-phrases and danger symbols, an overview of all P & H phrases (in English), plus a table containing all the information on the classification status of every substance: what did EFSA propose (and when?), is there already a formal classification published under the CLP Regulation (and with what ATP, when?) and/or is there any on-going process to classify (or re-classify) a substance? And for each of those processes, every (proposed or adopted) classification is provided.
