ECHA consults on labels for two pesticides
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is seeking comments on proposals for EU-wide harmonised classification and labelling for the fungicides, tebuconazole and imazalil. The proposed classifications for tebuconazole are acute toxicity and hazardous to the aquatic environment. Those for imazalil are acute toxicity, carcinogenicity and hazardous to the aquatic environment. The public consultation will end on October 5th. Tebuconazole received EU agrochemical approval in 2009 ( Agrow No 559, p 9) and biocide approval, as a wood preservative, in 2008 ( Agrow No 552, p 12). Imazalil’s agrochemical approval was renewed in 2010 ( Agrow No 599, p 8).
