The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has opened a public consultation on Mitsui Chemicals' insecticide, dinotefuran, as a potential candidate for substitution. This is the first public consultation under the new EU biocidal products Regulation (528/2012), which has applied in EU member states since September 1st and covers non-crop pesticides. An application for dinotefuran as a new active ingredient is under evaluation, with the UK as rapporteur member state. The consultation has been triggered because the ai met two hazard criteria of being persistent and toxic. Comments are invited by January 28th 2014.
