Technical Monograph No 21 – March 1999

Technical Monograph No 21 – Framework for Ecological Risk Assessment of Plant Protection Products.  This paper has been prepared on behalf of GCPF by the European (ECPA) and American (ACPA) Crop Protection Associations in response to the growing need to seek a harmonised approach to Ecological Risk Assessment (ERA).
