EU warns Czech Republic on late biocide approvals

The European Commission has warned the Czech Republic that it may take legal action if the country does not implement legislation allowing approvals of two non-crop pesticides: the rodenticide, flocoumafen; and the fungicidal wood preservative, tolylfluanid. Both active ingredients were approved under the EU biocidal products Directive (98/8) in 2009 ( Agrow No 582, p 9) and EU member states had to transpose the decision into national legislation by September 30th 2010. The Czech Republic has already failed to act on a previous warning from the Commission. The products in question have passed the EU’s safety tests and Czech consumers are being penalised by the delay in national authorisation, the Commission says.
