2017 RODENTICIDE RESTRICTED
The current 6 valid registrations of rodenticide active ingredients 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 limited retailers, etc.
In fact, with the exception of the national Brodifacoum and Bromadiolone, the production of other 4 registered actives have never been approved as ‘designated site’ by MIIT (Ministry of Industry and Information Technology) and is therefore no meaning in the above list.
2019 LEGAL RODENTICIDES FROM CHINA
In the last two decades, several companies have registered various rodenticides in 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 2017 Pesticide Registration Regulation, all MOA 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.
