EU states support non-approval of triflumuron biocide
EU member states in the Standing Committee on Biocidal Products have supported proposals not to approve triflumuron as a non-crop insecticide. The European Commission proposed the action after the evaluation identified unacceptable risks for the aquatic and terrestrial compartments. The active ingredient was in the EU review of existing biocides, with Bayer CropScience supporting the dossier. Triflumuron gained EU re-registration for agrochemical uses in 2011.
