2017 RODENTICIDE RESTRICTED
The current 6 valid rodenticide active ingredients registered in China MOA (Flocoumafen, Sodium Diphacinone, Warfarin, Coumatetralyl, Bromadiolone, Brodifacoum) have been included into the “List of Restricted Pesticides” of year 2017. All of them will subject to production at the traceable ‘designated site’ and designation marketing management such as ID-based purchase and restricted retail, etc.
In fact, with the exception of the national Brodifacoum and Bromadiolone, the industrial production of other 4 registered actives have never been approved as ‘designated site’ by MIIT (Ministry of Industry and Information Technology). Therefore, the 4 active ingredients registered are actually meaningless in the above restricted pesticide list.
2019 CHINA’S RODENTICIDE REGULATION
In the last two decades, several companies have registered various rodenticides in China MOA, but the MIIT has so far approved the industrial synthesis of 2 rodenticide active ingredients, which are, Brodifacoum and Bromadiolone, at only 2 designated sites under the safety laws and environmental regulations. According to the Article 40 of MOA Directive No. 3/2017, all rodenticide registrations without production designated will be invalid with effect on August 1, 2019.
This is similar to the change from BPD (Directive 98/8/EC) to BPR (EU 528/2012) and the Article 95 list which is enforced in the EU countries. This is always known as ‘designated site’ in China, a direct translation based on the Chinese language.
