EU ban on chlorothalonil endorsed by member states

Member states of the EU’s Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (SCoPAFF) have voted to ban the fungicide, chlorothalonil.

Chlorothalonil – a broad-spectrum fungicide used in the control of plant diseases – currently plays a major role in disease control in the Irish cereals sector.

It also forms part of an anti-resistance strategy in disease control programmes to back up the chemistry being used.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the commission said: “The commission’s proposal for a non-renewal of chlorothalonil submitted to the member states was endorsed by the member states.

“The proposal is based on EFSA’s [European Food Safety Authority’s] scientific assessment which concluded that the approval criteria does not seem to be satisfied for a wide range of reasons.

“There are also serious environmental concerns, notably high risks are identified for fish and amphibians and great concerns are raised in relation to contamination of groundwater by metabolites of the substance,” the statement concluded.

But no official information on use-by or phase out dates is yet available.
