The European Commission has published a new Regulation, Commission Delegated Regulation 2015/2229 which concerns the import and export of hazardous chemicals.

Fenbutatin oxide is no longer approved for use as a pesticide, and has been added to the lists of chemicals contained in Parts 1 and 2 of Annex I to Regulation (EU) No 649/2012. A number of other chemicals have now been added to Annex I of Regulation 649/2012, which are subject to export notification procedure. These are:

  • lead compounds
  • dibutyltin compounds
  • trichlorobenzene
  • pentachloroethane
  • 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane
  • 1,1,1,2-tetrachloroethane
  • 1,1,2-trichloroethane
  • 1,1-dichloroethene

In addition, endosulfan has been added to Annex V of Regulation 649/2012 as a POP to be consistent with the listing of this class of chemicals under the Stockholm Convention.
