The article reports on a three-year delay in the implementation of a European Union (EU) control system on biocides. The delay comes after the European Commission admitted an attempt to assess the chemicals was way behind schedule. Under a 1998 directive, national EU rules governing the release of biocides into the environment, and hence water supplies, were to lapse in May 2010 and be replaced by EU regulations.
