New EU biocide rules in force

The European Commission has published the new EU rules covering the registration of biocides, including non-crop products. The EU biocidal products Regulation (528/2012) comes into force on July 17th. It will apply in member states from September 1st 2013, when it will replace the EU biocidal products Directive (98/8). The rules were finally agreed in May after three years of negotiations, and will bring in stricter registration requirements ( Agrow No 640, p 9).
