ECHA consults on bupirimate labels
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has opened a consultation on proposals for EU-wide harmonised classification and labelling for the fungicide, bupirimate. The Netherlands has proposed classifications for carcinogenicity, skin sensitisation and being hazardous to the aquatic environment. Comments are invited by August 16th. Bupirimate was re-registered in the EU in 2011 (Agrow No 612, p 12).
