EFSA to examine emergency use of neonicotinoids

Dec 31, 2020

The request from the European Commission covers 21 emergency authorisations of clothianidin, imidacloprid, thiamethoxam and thiacloprid granted by Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, Spain, Finland, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovakia.

Outdoor use of imidacloprid, thiamethoxam and clothianidin was banned in May 2018 and an application to renew the approval of thiacloprid was rejected by the European Commission in January 2020. The decisions were taken following scientific assessments carried out by EFSA.
