Summary title: Petition No 0548/2019 by Nicolas Laarman (French) on behalf of Pollinis France on the impact of the use of SDHI fungicides on human health and the eco-systems
Petition number: 0548/2019
Topics: Health, Environment
Country: European Union
Name of association: POLLINIS France
Name: Nicolas Laarman
The petitioner alleges that, apart from the beneficial aspects of SDHI fungicides, their collateral effects are deleterious for several other living organisms, according to the time and doses of their exposition to the SDHI fungicides. According to him, the current legislative framework has been established without properly taking into account the constantly updated scientific data, and the test methodology is not proper to measure the serious danger of the fungicides. The petitioner lists a series of scientific data, highlighting the seriousness of the danger provoked by the use of SDHI fungicides. He urges the European Parliament to re-assess the impact of these substances on human health, the eco-systems and the pollinating insects, as provided for in Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market.
