EPPO Workshop on the Evaluation and Regulation of the use of Biological Control Agents

 

EPPO together with COST-SMARTER (www.ragweed.eu), and in association with IOBC, IBMA (International Biocontrol Manufacturers’ Association), CABI and the Ministry of Agriculture of Hungary is organising a workshop to explore how the use of biological control agents is evaluated and regulated across the European and Mediterranean region. This workshop will be held in Budapest on 2015-11-23/24. In many EPPO member countries three different areas of legislation, concerning plant quarantine, plant protection products and invasive species, interact in the regulation of biological control agents. The ways in which legislation is applied may vary between different countries, between different types of organism, and different modes of use.

The main aims of the workshop are:

  • To gather information on how different types of legislation are applied to use of biological control agents in the EPPO region
  • To compare the different types of evidence and analysis required for making decisions on the import and use of biological control agents
  • To make recommendations on the possible improvement and harmonisation of procedures 

The workshop will be of interest to:

  • Regulators making decisions on applications to import, release and use biological control agents
  • Researchers in biological control
  • Manufacturers of products based on biological control agents
