EU approves four biocides

The European Commission has issued EU approvals for four non-crop pesticides. They comprise: didecyldimethyl ammonium chloride and alkyl (C12-16) dimethylbenzyl ammonium chloride for use in wood preservatives; and diflubenzuron and pyriproxyfen for use in insecticides/acaricides. They were approved under the EU biocidal products Directive (98/8), following clearance from EU Ministers. The approvals were part of the review of existing biocides. They will be added to Annex I of the Directive on February 1st 2015, to give regulators and industry time to adjust to the new approval conditions.
