Implications of New Data Requirements on European Union Pesticide Registration - First Experiences

Petra Cirpus, BASF

In 2011 and 2012, new data requirements and guidelines for environmental exposure and risk assessment were implemented by the European Union (EU) commission after Regulation Number 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 October 2009, concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market, came into force. With these new measures, the EU commission intended to improve the environmental assessment of pesticides for, e.g., pesticide fate, persistence, bioaccumulation and toxicity (PBT) characteristics, endocrine disruption, and effects on bees. Efforts are on-going through the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to harmonize pesticide data requirements and assessment methods across all OECD countries.

You are invited to the session on new data requirements (RA03). You will hear the following presentations on ecotoxicology and environmental fate topics relevant for stakeholders from academia, industry and government:

  • Ecosystem Services in Risk Assessment and Management of Pesticides | Joke Van Wensem
  • Examining New Environmental Data Requirements Under Regulation 1107/2009–French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health Safety Opinion | Véronique Poulsen
  • Selection of an Additional Test Species Besides Daphnia magna for the Effect Evaluation of Insecticides to Invertebrates Under Regulation 1107/2009 | Michiel Daam
  • OECD Harmonized International Guidance and Ecoregion Crosswalk for Pesticide Terrestrial Field Dissipation Studies (Part 1) | Mary Mitchell
  • OECD Harmonized International Guidance and Ecoregion Crosswalk for Pesticide Terrestrial Field Dissipation Studies (Part 2) | Mah Shamim
  • Quantifying Soil Surface Photolysis Under Conditions Simulating Water Movement in the Field: A New Laboratory Test Design | Laurence Hand

The session will take place from 13:55 - 16:00 on Monday, May 13, in room Carron at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre. Further information on new data requirements for plant protection products in the EU will be presented at the poster session later that afternoon in the Exhibit Hall.
