Improving safety checks

Following a European Parliament vote "Biocides" - ranging from rat poisons to disinfectants - will be subject to tougher safety checks. The aim is to better protect human health and the environment, while streamlining the marketing approval process.
"I am very pleased that we have found balanced answers to improve both safety checks and the approval process, so that Europeans will have access to new pest control products that are safe and effective", said rapporteur Christa Klass (EPP, DE), after MEPs approved the legislation by a show of hands. Council, which has already provisionally agreed to the new legislation, must give a formal green light for it to enter into force.
