Dazomet approaches EU biocide approval
EU Agriculture Ministers have cleared a European Commission proposal to approve dazomet as a wood preservative. Once confirmed by the Commission, the active ingredient will be added to Annex I of the EU biocidal products Directive (98/8). BASF was notifier for the ai in the EU review of biocides. Dazomet is sold as Wolmanit Fume by German company Dr Wolman, part of BASF. Belgium is rapporteur member state for the ai.
