EU rejects German restrictions on indoxacarb biocide

The European Commission has rejected a bid by Germany to impose greater restrictions on the non-crop use of the insecticide, indoxacarb, than exist in the active ingredient’s first EU approval as a biocide. The country wanted to exclude food protection from the list of authorised uses, arguing that it should be covered by the EU agrochemical registration Regulation (1107/2009). However, the Commission maintains that the Regulation does not apply to products whose main purpose is hygiene rather than the protection of plants or plant products. A similar move by Germany regarding the non-crop rodenticide, difenacoum, was also rejected by the Commission earlier this year ( Agrow No 659, p 12).
