Cheminova loses court appeal on malathion

Cheminova has lost its appeal against an EU court order that refused to suspend the phase-out of the insecticide/acaricide, malathion. In late 2007, the EU Court of First Instance rejected Cheminova's application for a suspension ( Agrow No 540, p 13). Last month, the EU Court of Justice (ECJ) upheld that ruling. Malathion uses were phased out in the EU by the end of 2008, after the EU authorities decided in 2006 not to re-register the active ingredient ( Agrow No 522, p 6).
