The Efficacy guidelines contain information additional to the general guidance in the redrafted registration handbook (now renamed the Data Requirements Handbook). In many cases they have been developed in collaboration with the Crop Protection Association (CPA) through the Efficacy working group. They are arranged in a number of sections;
Revision of Efficacy guideline '103 - Efficacy Requirements for the UK Re-registration of Products Considered under the Transitional Arrangements of Regulation 1107/2009'
This guideline explains how to address the UK efficacy requirements for the existing products at re-registration and should be followed for all products completing their 91/414 re-registration in the UK. First issued in 2005, it has been updated in 2012 not only to clarify the procedures now that (EC)1107/2009 has been implemented, but also to reflect the experience gained since re-registration started.
The following draft guidelines are available and comments are invited.
There are various new developments affecting the way in which evaluations of for plant protection products are conducted, both now and in the future. Central to this is the new Regulation (EC 1107/2009) for placing plant protection products on the market (replacing Directive 91/414/EEC), which applies from the 14th June 2011. One of the key new provisions is zonal authorisations, with the EU divided into three zones. The UK is included as part of the 'Central' zone.
Following on from Regulatory Update 15/2010, proposed amendments to the dRR guidance and template documents to provide further guidance on future efficacy zonal assessments are now available.
Restrictions on fungicide use and label advice and warnings required to support resistance management.
These guidelines are published as drafts to allow any further comments, and if you wish to do so please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following guidelines on the generation of efficacy data are available in pdf format from this site.
Applicants should also be aware of the EPPO standards on Efficacy Evaluation of Plant Protection Products. These EPPO standards are available as a web-based database from the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organisation (EPPO) (http://pp1.eppo.int/). All general standards can be accessed free of charge. Access to specific standards is provided for an annual fee. Our guidelines marked 'EPPO Standard n/nnn' in the notes column have either been superseded or adopted and published in a revised form as EPPO standards.
