HSL is to run a 2 day course on CRD - Two Day Technical Fate and Behaviour Assessment of Plant Protection Products Workshop.
Chemicals Regulation Division, Mallard House, Kings Pool, 3
Peasholme Green, York YO1 7PX
15-16 November 2017
HSE's Chemicals Regulation Division will be holding a two-day
workshop on technical aspects of the environmental fate and
behaviour assessments of plant protection products. The workshop
will present attendees with an overview of environmental fate
assessments at EU level and highlight the key issues that they must
take into account when preparing product approval
submissions. The workshop will cover basic introductions to
the use of the FOCUS groundwater and surface water models and
various refinement options, as well as UK specific environmental
exposure requirements. Each day will comprise a mixture of
presentations and workshops with worked examples. By the end
of the course, participants will have a better appreciation of this
area of pesticide risk assessment and be better able to prepare
regulatory submissions for plant protection products.
The course will cover:
It is proposed that the training will cover areas such as:
- Overview of the EU process, the EFSA conclusion, key endpoints,
data gaps and critical areas of concern
- The use of the risk envelope approach
- Zonal assessment and national addenda
- FOCUS groundwater modelling (e.g. with PEARL and PELMO)
- FOCUS surface water Steps 1, 2 and 3 and risk mitigation with

(groundwater using FOCUS MACRO, spray drift, buffer zones and drift
reduction technology, first tier drainflow and higher tier
refinement options, through an introduction to the latest version
- Common problems with applications
- Future developments, new data requirements, EFSA activities,
PPR opinions and guidance documents
Given the nature of the event, places will be limited to a
maximum of 16 delegates.
