Plant protection Active substances
Our experts help you obtain approval for new active substances and to renew the approval of existing ones.
Strategic analysis and regulatory consulting
Compare application with regulatory requirements to advise the best possible procedure / opportunity. We monitor the specific requirements for active substances (defined in part A of the annex to Reg 283/2013).
Exploration of "low-risk" avenues (Regulation 2017/1432) and LMR exemption (SANCO/11188/2013 rev.2).
Stewardship (preparation and participation) for pre-application meetings.
This type of meeting is essential insofar as it represents an opportunity to present the product and proposed strategy and, above all, to speak directly with the authorities who will evaluate the application.
Support in conducting and monitoring of laboratory studies
Laboratory choice is vital. Knowledge of the substance being tested and of the test principle is important for its proper design and to anticipate any potential pitfall.
