5 active ingredients registered in China

  • As the pioneer of rodenticides in China, Siyang Rodenticide Factory had registered a total of 5 active ingredients of anticoagulant rodenticides with the MOA in the past decades. These include: (1) Chlorophacinone (sole registration in China, renewal stopped in 2000), (2) Warfarin and (3) Coumatetralyl (both terminated under the 2017 regulations), as well as (4) Brodifacoum and (5) Bromadiolone for the 2 rodenticides adopted to be national.
  • Siyang Rodenticide Factory is the only authorized exporter of Bromadiolone TC in China: certified classification of hazardous chemicals with reference to UN TDG (UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods – Model Regulations) as “UN 3027, CLASS 6.1, PG: I”, subject to GAC mandatory export inspection (former CIQ) and pesticide export release order issued by ICAMA based on the Rotterdam Convention with 10-digit tariff number “2932209013” as specified by the China regulations (Catalogue of the People’s Republic of China for the Administration of the Import and Export of Pesticides).

The only authorized exporter of Bromadiolone TC in China since 2006

    • Bromadiolone, as a hazardous chemical, requires certification of hazard classification with reference to UN TDG for export from China. The technical material is certified as “UN 3027, Class 6.1, PG: I (Coumarin derivative pesticides, Solid, Toxic)”. At the same time, it is a mandatory GAC inspection (formerly CIQ) for export from China according to the regulations.
    • The obvious illegal export is the change from UN 3027 (Pesticides) to UN 2811 (Toxic Solid, Organic, N.O.S.).
    • A sample of GAC inspection certificate submitted to shipowners according to IMDG Code and China SN/T 0370.3-2021 Regulations (Rules For the Inspection of Packaging for Export Dangerous Goods – Part 3: Use Appraisal).

    • Bromadiolone, as a registered pesticide, export from China is subject to ICAMA legal approval and the issuance of a release order. The commodity code for Bromadiolone technical material (TC) including its concentrate (TK) has been clarified by the “Catalogue of the People’s Republic of China for the Administration of the Import and Export of Pesticides” regulation jointly issued by the MOA and GAC as the 10-digit Chinese tariff number “2932209013“.
    • Another obvious illegal export is the change of the legislated pesticide name code as above to 380899****, the HS code for RB (ready for use baits).
    • A sample of ICAMA export release order submitted to the GAC (Customs) under the China Pesticide Regulations based on the exercise of the Rotterdam Convention duties.

    • Bromadiolone technical material is a highly toxic chemical, lethal in small doses, with a toxicity class of Ia (extremely hazardous) recommended by the WHO and classified as Class I (very toxic) by EU Directive 67/548/EEC (now CLP regulation). It is classified as a HyperToxic (Mandarin: jù dú) chemical of the highest control level according to the Chinese decrees of 2002 and 2015, and is not available for air transport in China. And ocean shipments for export can only be Full Container Load (FCL). – A basic lesson: the cost of transporting extremely dangerous goods by sea in LCL (Less than Container Load) is certainly much higher than in FCL.
