For many years now, this conference has been a major event in the plant protection industry. Listen to the various viewpoints represented by the authorities, the industry, and the research sector. This event is of interest to anyone involved in the assessment of pesticides in air, soil and water.
Plant protection products (PPP) are strictly regulated within the European Union. The risk management and environmental assessment of PPPs, essential to produce compliant products, poses challenges across the entire plant protection industry.
The conference brings together representatives from regulatory and industry backgrounds, as well as political decision-makers to discuss the latest regulatory developments. It keeps track of scientific progress, advances in environmental fate and exposure as well as recent developments in risk assessment and risk mitigation.
