China Difenacoum ended in 2005

  • According to the National Industrial Policy “Regulations on Promoting Industrial Structure Adjustment” with the detailed Directive – “Directory for Guiding Industry Restructuring (2005)” that came into effect on December 2, 2005, new production of highly toxic pesticides is prohibited in China.
  • Difenacoum obtained pre-approval production from the authorities based on the existing Brodifacoum line (Difenacoum is synthesized in the same manner as Brodifacoum without the Bromine in initiation) when the plant was expanded in 2004. Unfortunately until the introduction of the national industrial policy in 2005, the plant did not complete its registration with the MOA.
