The future of pesticides in Europe

The European Commission has opened an online consultation on the revision of the main EU Pesticides Directive. The consultation is a chance for industry, farmers and other interested parties to give input on the revision the pesticides legislation.
The main issues addressed in the consultation are:
- the creation of “regional zones” for the authorisation of pesticides
- the clarification of data protection with regard to safety evaluation data
- issues relating to protection of consumers, operators and the environment.

In the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) context, the Pesticides Initiative Programme, implemented by COLEACP and set up by the European Union at the request of the ACP Group of States, has two overriding objectives:
- to enable ACP companies to comply with European food safety and traceability requirements;
- to consolidate the position of small-scale producers in the ACP horticultural export sector.
A partner to companies, the programme aims to provide support at every stage, bringing enterprises up to date on European legislative developments and helping them deal with practical matters such as adaptation of their methods and the human and financial means required to implement them.
