The WHO classification measures acute toxicity. FAO recommends that WHO Ia and Ib pesticides
should not be used in developing countries, and if possible class II should also be avoided. Note that a
'weaker' formulation will move these active ingredients into a lower hazard classification.

The LD50 value is a statistical estimate of the number of mg of toxicant per kg of bodyweight required to kill 50% of a large population of test animals. Organophosphate pesticides
Organophosphates (OPs) are the most widely used group of insecticides in the world and many of
these do not appear on restricted lists. They are among the most acutely toxic of all pesticides to both
insect pests, and to vertebrate animals and humans. OPs are hazardous both to professional and
amateur users. They are regularly detected in food items such as fruit and vegetables, sometimes
above a safety level known as the Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI). In the FAO / WHO Joint Meeting on
Pesticides Residues (JMPR), concerns were expressed that the ADI derived from subchronic or long-
term studies may not be the ideal benchmark for assessing risk posed by short-term exposure to
acutely toxic residues, including OPs. JMPR established an Acute Reference Dose (ARfD), defined as ‘an
estimate of a substance in food or drinking water, expressed on body weight basis, that can be
ingested over a short period of time, usually during one meal or one day, without appreciable health
risk to the consumer on the basis of all known facts at the time of evaluation.’ An ARfD has not yet been
established for all pesticide / food combinations.
This list is taken from PAN UK’s classification of active pesticide Pesticides and cancer
This list cites potential pesticide carcinogens from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the European Union (EU) found in public documents. In 1993, Pesticides News listed 70 possible carcinogens – now the list has grown to over160. Many of the pesticides included are obsolete chemicals but may be found in stockpiles. Other pesticides are still in use, especially those cited by the US EPA. For some pesticides, like DDT, there is classification systems in recentyears. Some categories have agreement about carcinogenic potential, but with many others authorities do not agree on the risks.
The information supplied is taken from a range of sources, and it has not been easy to locate therelevant information. Indeed there are some inconsistencies and inaccuracies between and within the source documents. We invite comment, and hope that this information helps to stimulate international debate on how regulators deal with potentially carcinogenic pesticides.

Regulators do not agree on the list of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDC). This list shows that four official sources agree only on atrazine, DDT, lindane and tributyltin. In May 2005 international experts and scientists representing different disciplines convened in Prague to discuss European research on EDCs, known as the cluster for research on endocrine disrupters (CREDO). The results reinforced concerns over the long-term consequences of exposure to endocrine disrupters to humans and wildlife (see the Prague Declaration on Endocrine Disruption www.edenresearch.info/declaration.html).

Pesticides in the Marine Environment of the
North-East Atlantic (OSPAR Convention)
The 1992 OSPAR Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the North-East Atlantic isthe current instrument guiding international cooperation on the protection of the marine environment ofthe North-East Atlantic. It combined and up-dated the 1972 Oslo Convention on dumping waste at seaand the 1974 Paris Convention on land-based sources of marine pollution. The work under theconvention is managed by the OSPAR Commission, made up of representatives of the Governments of15 Contracting Parties (Belgium, Denmark*, Finland*, France, Germany, Iceland*, Ireland,Luxembourg*, the Netherlands*, Norway*, Portugal, Spain*, Sweden*, Switzerland*, the UnitedKingdom*) and the European Commission, representing the European Community. Observers from 25non-governmental organisations, representing environmental groups and industry, also contribute to theCommission's work.
The pesticides agreed as 'priorities for action' are listed here (updated in 2004), as well as a list ofsubstances of 'possible concern' including 98 pesticides (updated in September 2005).
These compounds are generally extremely toxic, causing acute toxicity, cancer, reproductive and developmental toxicity. Previous use as a pesticide.
Dicofol is supplied in the European Union at levels greater than 1 000 tonnes/annum for use as a acaricide. The substance is highly toxic to aquatic organisms, bioaccumulative and will not degrade rapidly in the aquatic environment. It is currently not on a priority list for assessment under the EC Plant Protection Products Directive. Potential for endocrine disrupting effects, dicofol.** Endosulfan is produced in high volume in the European Union for use as an insecticide. It is very highly toxic, bioaccumulative and not easily degradable. Monitoring programmes detected this substance in surface waters. Potential for endocrine disrupting effects.** Hexachlorocyclohexane (Note: a synonym for the common name for mixed isomers is benzene hexachloride (BHC); common name for the gamma isomer is gamma-HCH or gamma-BHC; synonym for the 99% gamma isomer, which still has pesticide uses, is lindane) Methoxychlor is used principally as an insecticide, although production and use volumes are now thought to be low. It has been found in surface waters. Methoxychlor shows very high toxicity to aquatic species, is highly bioaccumulative and does not degrade easily in the aquatic environment. It is structurally analogous to DDT.** This substance is used as an intermediate in chemical synthesis, in termite treatment and as a degreasing solvent. It is produced in high volume in the European Union. It has been included in the first Priority List for action under the EU Water Framework Directive and has been assessed under the Existing Substances Regulation of the European Community. Monitoring studies detected this substance in surface waters. It has a high toxicity to aquatic organisms, is bioaccumulative and does not easily degrade in the environment, and thus gives rise to concerns This substance is used as an intermediate in chemical synthesis, in termite treatment and as a degreasing solvent.

(NP/NPEs) and related substances: nonylphenol ethoxylate 9-ETO is used as an adjuvant in Previous pesticide uses noted as a fungicide, bactericide and preservative (sic) (organotin compounds) These include tributyltin pesticides used as antifoulants, microbiocides with some substances used as a fungicide (tributyltin fluoride) and as a Pentachlorophenol (PCP) Introduced in 1936 as a timber preservative, also used as an insecticide, fungicide, non-selective contact herbicide and general disinfectant. Very persistent in the environment.
Polychlorinated biphenyls PCBs substances: One pesticide (arochlor) is a PCB.
Trifluralin is a dinitroaniline herbicide used to control a wide spectrum of annual grasses and broadleaf weeds in agriculture, horticulture, viticulture, amenity and home garden. The major crops it is used on are oilseed rape and sunflowers and, to a lesser extent, cotton and cereals.
Trifluralin was added to the OSPAR List of Chemicals for Priority action in 2002.

OSPAR Convention - Substances of concern
The OSPAR List of Substances of Possible Concern is a dynamic working list and will be regularly
revised as new information becomes available. This may lead to exclusion of substances present on
the current version and to inclusion of other substances if data on persistence, toxicity and liability to
bioaccumulate (or evidence that they give rise to an equivalent level of concern) show that they should
be added. This version of the OSPAR List of Substances of Possible Concern was last revised on 21

Regulation of water in Europe is in the process of change. Community policy on pollution caused by certain dangerous or hazardous substances in European waters was introduced three decades ago. The The first list of priority hazardous Dangerous Substances Directive 76/464/EEC of 4 May 1976 had the ambitious objective of regulating potential aquatic pollution by thousands of chemicals produced in Europe at that time. Community water policy has been restructured under the Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) (WFD), adopted in September 2000. Directive 76/464 is being integrated in the WFD, and will be fully repealed in 2013.
phasing out of discharges,emissions and losses within an Directive 76/464 covers discharges to inland surface waters, territorial waters, inland coastal waters. It originally covered protection of groundwater, but this was removed in 1980 and regulated under the separate Council Directive 80/68/EEC on the protection of groundwater against pollution caused by certain dangerous substances. The priority substances for control under 76/464 were grouped under candidate Lists I and II, with the aim of eliminating pollution from List I substances and reducing pollution from List II substances. List I represents chemicals of greatest concern which were regulated in the 1980s at European level. List II substances (candidates for List 1) were required to be regulated nationally.
priorities, and other hazardoussubstances have been identified. The WFD has identified priority lists, and the European Commission is developing a proposal forregulating these substances, which is expected to be presented in 2006. The WFD list of prioritysubstances has replaced ‘candidate List I’ (now List II) of 1982, but includes only a minority of List 1substances. The WFD opens with a number of Recitals that indicate its intention. Recital 51 says that the aim of the “implementation of this Directive is to achieve a level of protection of waters at least equivalent to that provided in certain earlier acts, which should therefore be repealed once the relevant provisions of the WFD have been fully implemented.” Recital 53 refers to the fact that full implementation and enforcement of existing environmental legislation for the protection of waters should be ensured. Collectively, the Recitals certain individual substances were of the WFD seek to maintain a standard of water quality at least equivalent to that existing under present to be selected on the basis of their EC law. Article 1(c) "aims at enhanced protection and improvement of the aquatic environment ." It is vital therefore that the substances identified under 76/464, and the standards it established, are fully integrated into the WFD before this earlier Directive is repealed.

Agricultural Pesticides Directive 91/414/EEC
In an ambitious work programme launched in 1992, the European Commission started a Community-wide review process for all active ingredients used in plant protection products (pesticides) within theEuropean Union. In a review process based on scientific assessments, each applicant had to prove that asubstance could be used safely regarding human health, the environment, ecotoxicology and residuesin the food chain. If a pesticide is approved under 91/414/EEC it is placed on Annex 1 of the Directive,and may be used throughout Member States. This and the following pages list those that have failed thereview process and are not listed on Annex 1. The pesticides on page 14 have been granted a limitedextension of use on certain crops until the end of December 2007 when they must come off the market.
Those on page 15 have failed to make it onto Annex 1 and have been withdrawn from the market. Insome cases this may be because the manufacturer has not supplied the data required to extendregistration. In some cases the pesticide has been banned (see page 13). This programme should becompleted by 2008. The information here indicates the type of use, the date it came off the market andthe relevant decision making directive.
Pesticides withdrawn from the EU with ‘essential use’ derogations
Pesticides with essential uses have not been given EU-wide approval. Certain countries have been given an extension (or derogation) for one or more essential uses for the active ingredient on specific crops until December 2007. Member States are expected to explore alternatives to their use and to report on progress in substituting less harmful products or methods.

These pesticides can no longer be used in Member States. In some cases no manufacturer applied for registration; in some casesthe active ingredient has been banned or severely restricted (see page 13) http://europa.eu.int/comm/food/fs/p h_ps/pro/eva/existing/exis02_en.pd European Union Risk Phrases
European Union (EU) requires that risk phrases (R-phrases) appear on each label and safety datasheet for hazardous chemicals. R-phrases consist of the letter R followed by a number. The precisemeaning of each of these appears below (see www.ilpi.com/msds/ref/riskphrases.html) Labels will also have symbols or pictograms, but the R-phrase specifies the particular danger(s). Forexample, sodium metal may have a large F and flame icon on the label, but the particular risk isdenoted by R14/15 and R34 which correspond to "Reacts violently with water liberating highlyflammable gases" and "causes burns".
Safety phrases (S-phrases) for handling precautions are also part of the same requirements (seewww.ilpi.com/msds/ref/safetyphrases.html).
More than one R-phrase may appear on a Materials Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). These are usuallypresented in combination, such as R36/37/38. In the first table below, single phrases are given, and inthe second table, combinations are given. In general, no more than four R-phrases should be sufficientto adequately communicate the risks of a particular material. The R-phrases selected should be thoseapplicable to the substance(s) present in the concentration which gives rise to the most severeclassification.
