    "Tecnazene is a fungicide and potato sprout suppressant widely used on stored potatoes. However, due
    to insufficient data to perform an adequate risk assessment, use of all pesticides containing
    tecnazene was revoked on 31 January 2000."

    "This decision by Ministers follows a request for further data by the Advisory Committee on
    Pesticides in 1995. A period of 3 years was allowed for the relevant residue stability, animal
    metabolism and environmental fate and behaviour data to be produced. At the end of this period
    inadequate data was submitted to the independent Advisory Committee on Pesticides and therefore the
    risk assessment for tecnazene could not be completed. As a result approval for all products
    containing tecnazene has been revoked and a period up to 31 January 2002 has been allowed for
    disposal of existing stocks in the supply chain."
