SPINOSAD TECHNICAL MATERIAL
This specification, which is PART ONE of this publication, is based on an evaluation of data submitted by the manufacturer whose name is listed in the evaluation report (636/2005). It should be applicable to TC produced by this manufacturer but it is not an endorsement of those products, nor a guarantee that they comply with the specifications. The specification may not be appropriate for TC produced by other manufacturers. The evaluation report (636/2005), as PART TWO, forms an integralpart of this publication.
The material shall consist of spinosad together with related manufacturing impurities and shall be a grey/white to tan coloured powdery material, free from visible extraneous matter and added modifying agents.
2 Active ingredient
2.1 Identity tests (636/TC/M/2, CIPAC Handbook L, p.121, 2006) The active ingredient shall comply with an identity test and, where the identity remains in doubt, shall comply with at least one additional test.
2.2 Spinosad content (636/TC/M/3, CIPAC Handbook L, p.121, 2006) The spinosad (spinosyn A + spinosyn D) content shall be declared (not less than 850 g/kg) and, when determined, the average measured content shall not be lower than the declared minimum content.
