EUROPE: Release of a Biopesticides Manual on microorganisms, botanicals and semiochemicals

Ctgb, the Authorities from the Netherlands, has released a Manual on Biopesticides. It concerns microorganisms (including viruses), botanicals and semiochemicals (e.g. pheromons).

This Manual gives an overview of data requirements and risk assessments for biopesticides in all areas: phys-chem properties and analytical methods, mammalian toxicology, residues, fate and behaviour, effects on non-target species and efficacy.

This Evaluation Manual addresses the evaluation of biopesticides based on the data requirements and uniform principles under Regulation (EC) No. 1107/2009. Mainly issues that need further explanation are addressed. Where needed, important information from the Regulations or additional explanations and interpretations are provided.
