Evaluation and Authorization Procedures for Plant Protection Products This course will allow an analysis and exchange on risk assessment methodologies applied at national level for the assessment of plant protection products and authorisations process performed in accordance with Uniform principles set under Regulation (EU) No 546/2011.
Description

Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market has introduced a new legal framework in Europe for the assessment and approval of active substances and for authorisations of plant protection products containing them. Despite that, in several areas of risk assessment national requirements are still substantially hampering the functioning of the zonal system and the respect of set deadlines. Currently, the degree of harmonisation is low concerning the mitigation techniques and measures available in the different Member States, their use by the Competent Authorities in granting authorisations and their documentation on the label.


The environmental risk mitigation measures included in the risk assessment to define at higher tiers the safe use are fundamental to define the conditions for use of pesticides in each crop. Indeed, once defined they become part of the authorisation conditions and have to be reported on the labelling of the products in the form of Safety Precaution Phrases (SP-phrase), according to Regulation (EU) No. 547/2011. In this context, a part of the workshop will follow up on the results of MAgPIE project which provides the toolbox of risk mitigation measures designed for the use on the pesticides for agricultural purposes.


This course is focus on: deepen how Member States and/or zones implement the Uniform principles for evaluation and authorisation of plant protection products; examine national risk assessment methodologies and identify which degrees of flexibility in the model used could still be adjusted to not undermine potential mutual recognition; examine some specific cases of risk reduction goals deriving from the risk assessment and how they are pursued through identification of effective risk mitigation measures; compare and discuss possible equivalent risk mitigation measures; exchange on experience gained in implementing the Guidance SANCO/11244/2011 rev. 5 on the preparation and submission of dossiers for plant protection products according to the “risk envelope Approach”.
