Summary of the final regulatory action:

It is prohibited to sell, stock, store or use fluazifop-P-butyl as a pesticide.

The reasons for the final regulatory action were relevant to: Human health

Summary of known hazards and risks to human health:

Fluazifop-P-butyl has shown in animal studies, rat and rabbit, that it causes effects on reproduction and that it is a teratogen. This means that it also has the potential to cause these effects in humans. The risk of this happening is higher for the workers than for the consumers, although it is also possible that residues can be high and thus also be a risk to the consumer too.

Expected effect of the final regulatory action in relation to human health:

Complete risk reduction.
