Review of ais starts under EU water quality rules
The European Commission expects to adopt by July 2011 proposed revisions to the list of active ingredients that are subject to water pollution controls. A total of 33 substances, including 11 pesticides, are currently regulated under the EU water framework Directive (2000/60). “The review is likely to lead to the addition of others,” the Commission says. A public consultation is scheduled for early 2011.
