Indian endosulfan review to be expedited

The Indian government is to ask a committee reviewing the organochlorine insecticide/acaricide, endosulfan, to expedite its report. The move comes after a delegation of legislators from the southern Indian state of Kerala met the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, urging him to impose a national ban on the active ingredient. The delegation also urged the central government to support the listing of the ai on the Stockholm Convention of persistent organic pollutants (POPs).

Dr Singh expressed the view that a national ban would require national consensus backed by scientific study.
