The CEUREG Forum XIX. meeting took place according to the Agenda (see enclosed). Participating countries from the CEUREG region, other participating EU member states representatives, industry and other participating representatives, discussed current issues related to the PPPs authorisation system under the scope of the Regulation 1107/2009/EC, current issues and requirements related to the Directive 2009/128/EC, issues related to the PPPs control and stage of progress of the draft regulation on official controls.

Other topics discussed included:

  • comparative assessment of PPPs containing candidates for substitution
  • new legal aspects of PPPs parallel trade
  • training for safe handling and use of PPPs
  • results of current PPPs official controls system in different cases
  • authorisation of PPPs in non-EU countries

Participants from regulatory bodies of the CEUREG region countries agreed on the following conclusions and recommendations:

  1. EU Member States individual capacity should be appropriate to the requirements and shorter timelines established by the Regulation 1107/2009/EC. Some EU Member States from CEUREG region still have capacity problems.
  2. EU MS authorities should further build up transparency of processes, data requirements and criteria within the authorisation process as to the comparative assessment of PPPs containing candidates for substitution.
  3. CEUREG region countries support the activities in the field of training for safe handling and use of PPPs, e.g. Better Training for Safer Food (BTSF).
  4. CEUREG region countries appreciate the last developments and progress as to the draft of the regulation on the official controls, especially the fact, that the control of pesticides application equipment will further remain under the scope of the Directive 2009/128/EC.
