According to an assessment released in May 2012 that demonstrated that biocidal products containing bifenthrin cannot be expected to satisfy the requirements laid down in EU biocidal Directive 98/8/EC, the European Commission has decided to phase out bifenthrin for used for use as an insecticide/acaricide (product type 18) from 1 May 2013. The scenarios evaluated in the environmental risk assessment showed an unacceptable risk for the aquatic compartment by using bifenthrin. EU has just approved bifenthrin as a wood preservative in February 2011.
