Withdrawal of an approval

The authorisation holder may withdraw the product from the market in a formal written letter to the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, or as an attachment to an e-mail to postmottak@mattilsynet.no. The withdrawal should state from what date the withdrawal applies.

The Norwegian Food Safety Authority may withdraw or amend an authorisation if the requirements for the authorisation no longer are fulfilled. In such cases we will inform the authorisation holder of the withdrawal and the grace period in a decision letter. It is the responsibility of the authorisation holder to inform the importer, distributes and retailers of the decision.

The Norwegian Food Safety Authority will grant a grace period when a plant protection product is withdrawn or amended.
