Suspension of Approvals for fungicides containing tolylfluanid - 01/03/2007
 
Immediate Suspension of Approvals for fungicides containing tolylfluanid, product names 'Elvaron Multi' (M11422) and 'Talat' (11311).
Immediate Suspension of Approvals for fungicides containing tolylfluanid, product names 'Elvaron Multi' (M11422) and 'Talat' (11311).

The Pesticides Safety Directorate (PSD) has received information from the European Commission that the German Regulatory authorities have suspended a tolylfluanid containing fungicide “Euparen M WG”. The suspension is on the basis that a newly-characterised metabolite of tolylfluanid may in the course of treatment of water for the public supply, be converted into a nitrosamine. Nitrosamines are harmful to health and the product has been suspended whilst the risk is investigated.

See for further information.
