ECHA opinions on rodenticide labels
Proposals for EU-wide harmonised classification and labelling for eight anticoagulant rodenticides have been agreed by the risk assessment committee (RAC) of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). They cover brodifacoum, bromadiolone, chlorophacinone, coumatetralyl, difethialone, difenacoum, flocoumafen and warfarin. While most of the active ingredients already have harmonised classification for some factors, this would represent the first EU-wide labelling for bromadiolone and difethialone. The proposals for new or adjusted classifications were put forward by EU member states.
