CP17-010 Neonicotinoids: an update on Commission proposals to introduce further restrictions : 19 May 2017
At the end of March 2017 the Commission put forward a proposal to restrict all outdoor uses of clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam, including seed treatments. The only use proposed is ‘in permanent greenhouses where the crop stays its entire life cycle within the greenhouse and thus is not replanted outside’.
At the beginning of May the Commission issued an implementing decision which proposed classifying monitoring traps treated with or intentionally incorporating an active substance to attract harmful organisms as biocidal products.
