China Amends Registration of 2 Biopesticides for Nomenclature IssuesOn March 20, 2021, the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs issued a notice to provincial agricultural bureaus concerning the name modification and registration amendment of Veratrum rhizome extract and Grapholitha molesta pheromone, which have already registered in China.

This move was made as per the recommendation from the National Expert Committee of Pesticide Registration and relevant registrants are required to apply for registration amendment by June 30 as follows:

  • Products containing veratrine need to be renamed as Veratrum rhizome extract while Resveratrol and veratrosine are designated as the characteristic ingredients to be specified in product quality specification. Registrants need to submit the original registration certificate, new data on the manufacturing process, quality standard, quality test report and electronic label
  • Grapholitha molesta pheromone has 3 active ingredients, namely Z-8-dodecen-1-yl acetate, E-8-dodecen-1-yl acetate and Z-8-dodecenol. The Cis-Trans nomencluature was adopted instead of the  Zasamman-Entgegen rules and the official names are Cis-8-dodecen-1-yl acetate, Trans-8-dodecen-1-yl acetate and Cis-8-dodecenol. Enterprises need to submit the original registration certificate, descriptive document, and electronic label.
