Malta to prohibit toxic insecticide with immediate effect

The insecticide Chlorpyrifos will no longer be allowed to be imported and used in Malta after the European Food Safety Authority, EFSA found that it was harmful to human health.

Parliamentary Secretaries Deo Debattista and Clint Camilleri said that at the beginning of this month EFSA announced that it would not be renewing the license of this insecticide after January 2020 because the chemical is toxic to humans and can lead to medical conditions.

The Parliamentary Secretaries announced that Malta has decided to immediately prohibit all products imported to Malta which contain chlorpyrifos. Eight other EU countries have already enforced this prohibition or have prevented their import/ registration.

Maltese farmers who use these insecticide will be helped to find alternative products. Farmers can call freephone 80072213 to discuss with experts what is going and what alternatives they can use and how to dispose of the products containing this chemical.
