EU Ministers adopt opinion on biocide changes

EU Ministers in June formally adopted their proposed amendments to European Commission plans to revise the EU biocidal products Directive (98/8), which covers non-crop pesticides. They have accepted many of the several hundred amendments put forward by the European Parliament last September, rejected others and added some of their own ( Agrow No 618, p 10).
