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). This is of particular concern in the context of the registration and use of crop/plant protection products (CPPs or PPPs) such as herbicides, insecticides and fungicides where regulatory decisionmaking is outpacing the development of ecological risk assessment tools to determine appropriate levels of safety.

Technical Monograph No 3 – March 1990

Technical Monograph No 3 – Environmental Criteria for the Registration of Pesticides. Assessment of effects on the environment is an integral part of the process of pesticide development and registration. This assessment should be designed to identify potential hazards, and thus enable 8 risks of adverse effects on the environment to be quantified and evaluated in relation to benefits.
