CONSULTATIONS: Pesticides – new uniform principles for evaluating and authorising products
(Source: European Commission)
The EU’s ‘farm to fork’ strategy aims to reduce dependency on chemical pesticides, including by enabling biological alternatives (such as microorganisms) to be sold in the EU.
To update the current rules for this purpose, this initiative will adapt Part II of the uniform principles for evaluating and authorising plant protection products to accommodate the characteristics of these microorganisms, as they are different to those of chemical substances.
