Novel Pesticides

This conference will look at ‘Novel Pesticides’, new substances and biologicals that strive to add to the overall aim of achieving greater sustainability in agricultural practices as there are still many open questions for producers, regulators and down-stream users of innovative substances, such as micro-organism-based PPPs, pheromones, plant extracts, RNAi-based PPPs, peptides, or even antibodies.

Towards Sustainability in the Regulatory Framework of the EU

In their May 2023 REFIT Report on the Evaluation of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, the EU Commission declares the promotion of low-risk-solutions and efficient risk mitigation as one of their future priorities. Yet, many open questions remain for producers and down-stream users of innovative substances, such as micro-organism-based PPPs, pheromones, plant extracts, RNAi-based PPPs, peptides, or even antibodies. This is especially true, since the Sustainable Use Regulation, priorly a key element of ‘Farm-to-Fork’ was voted down in Parliament last November and it does not look like it will be revived.

The meeting will offer a discussion platform to producers, policy makers and regulators to discuss a way forward for innovative pesticides and low-risk substances. It will cover regulatory issues and needs as well as discussing implications for the risk assessment of promising new pesticides.
