Legislation text

1,2-dibromoethane (EDB) is listed in Annex III to the Rotterdam Convention and is included in Annex I to Regulation (EU) No 649/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 July 2012 concerning the export and import of hazardous chemicals (OJ L 201, 27.7.2012 p. 60-106).


It is prohibited to place on the market or use plant protection products containing 1,2-dibromoethane (EDB) because it has been prohibited as active substance in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 October 2009 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market and repealing Council Directives 79/117/EEC and 91/414/EEC (OJ L 309, 24.11.2009, p. 1–50).

1,2-dibromoethane (EDB) is banned for use in the sub-category ‘other pesticide including biocides’ under Regulation (EU) No 649/2012, since 1,2-dibromoethane was not notified under the Community review programme for evaluation of existing substances under Directive 98/8/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 February 1998 concerning the placing of biocidal products on the market, repealed by Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 May 2012 concerning the making available on the market and use of biocidal products (OJ L 167, 27.6.2012, p. 1–123).
