Two Day Technical Fate and Behaviour Assessment of Plant Protection Products Workshop

HSE's Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD) is holding a two-day workshop on technical aspects of the environmental fate and behaviour assessments of plant protection products. 

The workshop will be held at the Chemicals Regulation Division in York on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th November, 2017.  Registration will begin from 9:00 am.  The workshop will start at 9:30 am on day one and finish around 4:00 pm on day two.  The cost per delegate to attend the workshop will be £600 (plus VAT).


Topics of discussion

The workshop will present attendees with an overview of environmental fate assessments at EU level and highlight the key issues that they must take into account when preparing product approval submissions.  The workshop will cover basic introductions to the use of the FOCUS groundwater and surface water models and various refinement options, as well as UK specific environmental exposure requirements.  Each day will comprise a mixture of presentations and workshops with worked examples.  By the end of the course, participants will have a better appreciation of this area of pesticide risk assessment and be better able to prepare regulatory submissions for plant protection products.

  • Overview of the EU process, the EFSA conclusion, key endpoints, data gaps and critical areas of concern
  • The use of the risk envelope approach
  • Zonal assessment and national addenda
  • FOCUS groundwater modelling (e.g. with PEARL and PELMO)
  • FOCUS surface water Steps 1, 2 and 3 and risk mitigation with SWAN
  • UK specific environmental exposure assessment requirements (groundwater using FOCUS MACRO, spray drift, buffer zones and drift reduction technology, first tier drainflow and higher tier refinement options, through an introduction to the latest version of Webfram)
  • Common problems with applications
  • Future developments, new data requirements, EFSA activities, PPR opinions and guidance documents 

Target Audience

This course is specifically designed for those with at least a basic working knowledge of environmental fate and behaviour who want to develop their expertise in this area further. 


Because of the nature of the event, places will be limited to a maximum of 16 people, and will be issued on a first-come first-served basis.

If you wish to register for the above workshop please visit http://www.hsl.gov.uk/crd and complete an online registration form. The closing date for applications is the 10th October 2017.
