The European Commission’s decision on the non-inclusion of the organophospate naled for product type 18, insecticides, acaricides and products to control other arthropods, in Annex I, IA or IB of the biocidal products directive has been published in the Official Journal. Annexes I, IA and IB are the lists of active substances that have been assessed as having hazards that can be sufficiently controlled to allow their effective use in certain biocidal product types. The Commission decided that type 18 biocidal products containing naled pose a potential and unacceptable risk to human health and the environment.
