EU states reject Dutch refusal of difenacoum approval

EU member states have agreed that the Netherlands should not be allowed to refuse to recognise other national approvals of a difenacoum-based non-crop rodenticide. The European Commission had asked for a vote on the issue after the Netherlands said that it intended to refuse approval due to questions over efficacy (Agrow No 672, p 8). It had received a request for mutual recognition of a French approval of a paraffin block formulation, Sorkil Bloc, originally gained by French company Edialux France in 2012. The French approval had already been recognised by Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium and Switzerland, and the Commission argued that efficacy had been adequately demonstrated.
