JOUE 13/01/20 RÈGLEMENT D'EXÉCUTION (UE) 2020/18 DE LA COMMISSION du 10 janvier 2020 portant sur le non-renouvellement de l'approbation de la substance active «chlorpyriphos», conformément au règlement (CE) n° 1107/2009 du Parlement européen et du Conseil. EURACTIV 04/12/19 EU Commission set to vote on ban of controversial organophosate pesticides. The European Commission is set to vote on Friday (6 December) at the PAFF standing committee on not renewing the approval of two pesticides, chlorpyrifos and chlorpyrifos-methyl, which the EU’s food safety agency says may have serious effects on foetuses and children – a claim industry strongly rejects.

EURACTIV 04/12/19 EU Commission set to vote on ban of controversial organophosate pesticides

The two insecticides, which belong to a category of pesticides known as ‘organophosphates’ and are used on a number of crops, have faced staunch opposition from environmental and health groups, who say the agrochemicals cause major developmental issues in children. As it currently stands, the EU authorisation of the two pesticides is due to expire on 31 January 2020. If passed, the vote would effectively ban the pesticides from the EU.

However, the vote is being heavily contested, with manufacturers lobbying authorities to extend its legal existence. A peer review is when work is evaluated by several qualified members of a profession within a relevant field.

Chlorpyriphos is an organophosphorus insecticide, and many studies have confirmed that residues of the chemical in ground water and soil are associated with neurological disorders, especially in children.

In 2000, the United States of America banned its domestic use, but did not ban its use in agriculture and, in 2007, a number of environmental groups requested a review of the data, following which the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) initially recommended that a ban should be imposed on the use of chlorpyriphos. In Europe, Chlorpyriphos is legal, and the European Food Safety Authority recently revised the maximum recommended values for it downwards. Given that the scientific world has not yet determined the precise risks associated with using that compound, what initiatives does the Commission intend to adopt as a precautionary measure to protect the health of European consumers?

Spain drafted an evaluation report according to Article 8 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, which was submitted to the European Commission and forwarded to EFSA on 1 December 2010. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-3116/00 Risques liés à l'utilisation du chlorpyriphos.

Ainsi, d'ici la fin de l'année 2001, les produits contenant du chlorpyriphos ne pourront plus être utilisés dans les habitations et les jardins, ni dans les écoles, les garderies et les hôpitaux. 1. La Commission sait-elle que, selon une étude effectuée par l'agence américaine pour l'environnement EPA, ce pesticide fait partie de la catégorie chimique qui présente un risque extrême pour la santé humaine? 2. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - réponse à question E-005460/2012 Use of chlorpyrifos in the EU. Chlorpyrifos is one of the most widely used insecticides in the EU.

Its use is authorised in 21 of the 27 Member States, where it is sold in different formulations under a variety of trade names. Its introduction was authorised in 2006 under Council Directive 91/414/EEC (later replaced by Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009), on the understanding that more information would be provided later. Independent scientific studies have shown that, even in small quantities, chlorpyrifos is harmful to human health, non-target species and the ecosystem. 1. Does the Commission have information on how many products containing chlorpyrifos are sold each year in the EU and in each Member State?
