Imidacloprid: new assessment report

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has announced that the assessment report for the biocidal active substance imidacloprid (EC 428-040-8) has been revised. Specifically, the value for the predicted no effect concentration (PNEC) has changed. If you have applied or will apply for authorisation to use imidacloprid in your product, you need to take the new data into account in your risk assessment. The revised assessment report was agreed in the Biocidal Products Committee meeting in June. A copy of the assessment report is available at: Assessment report
