This document dealing with biological pesticides is intended to provide guidance to both industry and regulatory authorities, in the context of applications for the approval of microbial biological control agents (mBCAs), and for the registration of microbial biological control products (mBCPs).
This report presents the results of an OECD Seminar (Paris, May 2010) on biopesticide issues related to the fate in the environment of microbial control agents and their effects on non-target organisms.
The purpose of this Issue Paper that has been developed by the OECD BioPesticides Steering Group, is to highlight current international microbial contaminant criteria on food and drinking water and to encourage discussions among OECD member countries.
This Guidance Document will help in planning the trials in OECD countries and in interpreting the results.It is part of the Series on Pesticides (no. 66).
The Pesticide Programme of the OECD looks to help governments co-operate in assessing and reducing the risks of agricultural pesticides. The OECD encourages governments to share the work of pesticide registration and develops tools to monitor and minimise pesticide risk to health and the environment.
The objective of the OECD Biocide Programme is to attain a harmonised approach in the regulation of biocides in all OECD countries. The OECD is thus working on harmonising the main data requirements for biocides and the methodologies for the interpretation of these data.
This guidance document was prepared to support joint reviews in order to maximize opportunities of work-sharing arrangements between regulatory authorities in OECD countries.
This report presents the results and recommendations of an OECD Seminar on risk reduction through prevention, detection and control of the illegal international trade in agricultural pesticides.
This document is the report of the OECD Seminar Pesticide Risk Reduction Strategies near/in Residential Areas that was held on 17 November, 2009 in Tokyo, Japan.
With the goal of harmonizing the calculation of MRLs across the OECD, the OECD has developed a MRL Calculator. It is made up of a simple to use xls. A User Guide and a Statistiscal White Paper are available to help with the use of the Calculator.
