Under EU pesticide regulation, a new category of active substance, namely low-risk substances are defined by Article 22 of Regulation 1107/2009. Since 2015, during de novo approbation or renewal, 18 biopesticides were approved giving rise to corresponding authorized marketed biocontrol agents. These low-risk substances are granted with 15 years approval instead of 10 usually, they are all without Maximum Residue Limits and corresponding Market Authorizations should be delivered in 120 days.
