    (en)
  • İnsan ve hayvan sağlığına, doğal veya yapay materyale zarar veren organizmaların büyümesini engelleyen dezenfektan, zirai ilaç, boya veya yüzey korucuyu olarak kullanılan kimyasal madde. (tr)
  • Біоциди — засоби знищення шкідливих живих організмів. До біоцидів належать речовини, які використовуються для обробки води, захисту деревини, у виробництві фарб і покриттів, продуктів харчування та напоїв, а також косметичних речовин. Однією із провідних галузей використання біоцидів, звісно, є сільське господарство. Тут вони використовуються на великих площах і допомагають зберегти врожай. До біоцидів зараховують багато фунгіцидів, гербіцидів, інсектицидів, акарицидів, нематоцидів та інших груп агрохімікатів.

BROADER CONCEPT

SCOPE NOTE

  • The terms "biocides" and "pesticides" are regularly interchanged, and often confused with "plant protection products". To clarify this, pesticides include both biocides and plant protection products, where the former regards substances for non-food and feed purposes and the latter regards substances for food and feed purposes. European legislation defines biocides as as a chemical substance or microorganism intended to destroy, deter, render harmless, or exert a controlling effect on any harmful organism by chemical or biological means. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses a slightly different definition for biocides as "a diverse group of poisonous substances including preservatives, insecticides, disinfectants, and pesticides used for the control of organisms that are harmful to human or animal health or that cause damage to natural or manufactured products". The two definitions roughly imply the same, although the US EPA definition includes plant protection products and some veterinary medicines. (en)
