EU Council approves proposal to submit Chloropyrifos as Persistent Organic Pollutant

The Council of the European Union has approved a Commission proposal that would list chlorpyrifos (CAS No: 2921-88-2, EC No 220-864-4) in Annex A to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants.

Although chlorpyrifos has been phased out in the EU, it is still used as a pesticide elsewhere. Due to the potential for long-range environmental transport of chlorpyrifos, international measures are needed to safeguard the  protection of the environment and human health.
