Plant Protection Products

CEHTRA help with regulatory dossiers for agrochemicals CEHTRA provides support for successful registration and preparation of PPP dossiers.

Plant Protection Products are subject to restrictive regulations

These days placing Plant Protection Products on the market is a heavily regulated affair, putting companies under serious pressure. The new Regulation (EC) N° 1107/2009 adds new aspects to the existing system making it even more complex. Furthermore, new constraints have been included such as compliance with potential hazardous property thresholds (e.g. PBT, CMR, endocrine disrupting properties, etc.), which require numerous inter-disciplinary skills. In addition, the importance of several other regulatory requirements has increased recently, like legislative control over adjuvants, biopesticides, data protection, making again the need for regulatory experts.
