France : Revision of E-Phy database

E-Phy database, the catalog for plant protection products, adjuvants, fertilisers and growing media, and their authorised uses in France, constitutes a reference tool that is currently outdated  in term of  interface and technology. The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (Anses) is working on the revision of E-Phy database in order to propose a tool with ergonomics and functionalities corresponding to current standards.

The new E-Phy database will give information on authorised products and active substances: it will aim at providing information to both professionals and general public. The characteristics and conditions of use of the products, as defined in Anses’ opinions and decisions will be shown. The site will also give more general complementary information, for example on good practice and on post-authorisation follow-up.

The new E-Phy website will be available by the end of 2015.

Attention: while waiting for the publication online of the new tool, the current website will not be updated anymore . During this period of transition, it is recommanded to consult in parallel the recent authorisation decisions directly on Anses website.
