Environmental Risk Assessment for Plant Protection Products 2018

Date: 21 March 2018

Venue: Rothamsted Centre for Research and Enterprise, Harpenden

Price: Conference £480 + VAT

Conference outline:

Within European pesticide regulation there is increasing interest in the assessment of environmental risk at the landscape scale. This approach is being suggested by the European Food Safety authority and the concepts are integral to many recent opinions published by the Panel on Plant protection Products and their Residues. Such assessments will present significant challenges compared to the relatively simple approaches currently used. These include the mapping and integration of environmental exposure in the individual environmental compartments, mapping of the potential environmental effects on non-target organisms, integrating all these various aspects at the landscape scale and the management of the increasing complexity of such assessments so that they represent best science and also practicably meet regulatory needs. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from speakers discussing the various aspects of the assessment of both environmental exposure and effects at the landscape scale. This will include consideration of the individual areas of the risk assessment, such as aquatic and terrestrial exposure and risk, as well as reflecting on how such assessments could realistically be used within a regulatory framework.
