MEPs accept biocide deal

The European Parliament has voted in favour of plans to revise biocide registration rules. A compromise proposal had already been provisionally agreed between MEPs and EU member state officials late last year ( Agrow No 630, p 8), which means that the end is in sight for discussions that have been dragging on since 2009. The new rules will cover non-crop pesticides. They will introduce a new system for registering products at EU level, but MEPs failed in their bid to include rodenticides in this after EU member states objected to losing national independence on such products.
