Plant Protection Products
Do you have a product which is classified as a Plant Protection Product?
Does it contain an active substance or is it a preparation containing one or more active substances?
Is it intended for one or more of the following uses:
- to protect plants or plant products against harmful organisms or prevent the action of such organisms (for example agricultural/horticultural fungicides and insecticides),
- to influence the life processes of plants, other than as a nutrient (for example as a growth regulator),
- to preserve plant products, in so far as such substances or products are not subject to provisions of Community law on preservatives,
- to destroy undesired plants or destroy parts of plants or check or prevent the undesired growth of plants (for example herbicides)?
What do you do next?
You will have to comply with Regulation (EC) 1107/2009 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market. This Regulation aims to harmonise the registration of plant protection products throughout the European Community.
How do you go about registering?
You will be required to produce national dossiers in the areas of mammalian toxicology and ADME, ecotoxicology and environmental fate. These have to be supported with literature reviews on published studies, together with critical comments on their relevance to your submissions. You might also require risk assessments for proposed applications.
How do you achieve all this within time constraints and with limited resources?
