Companies go to court over EU biocide changes

A group of companies is seeking legal action against a European Commission update of the EU biocidal products Directive (98/8) on the grounds that it provides for unfair competition. The companies, including Sumitomo Chemical's UK subsidiary and UK-based Arch Timber Protection(Castleford, West Yorkshire?), a subsidiary of US firm Arch Chemicals, have asked the EU Court of First Instance to partially annul the amended rules for the review of existing biocide active ingredients, which were issued as Regulation 1451/2007 last December ( Agrow No 534, p 7).
