EU Ministers clear three biocide approvals

EU Ministers have cleared European Commission proposals to grant non-crop pesticide approvals to three active ingredients. Two proposals concern EU biocide approvals for Dow AgroSciences’ insecticide, spinosad, and Sumitomo Chemical’s insecticide, metofluthrin, while the third would add insecticide use to carbon dioxide’s existing EU approval as a rodenticide ( Agrow No 599, p 12). The Commission is now free to issue formal decisions adding the ais to Annex I of the EU biocidal products Directive (98/8).
