Course overview

Whether you're new in the industry or have been in a technical role for years, it is vital to have a basic understanding of the Regulation EC 1107/2009, where it is coming from and why your work is important. This course is designed to give you the background knowledge of EC 1107/2009 without being involved in Regulatory Affairs.

Useful for anybody who requires a basic working knowledge of the regulation, the course will be of most interest to people conducting different studies related to the regulation (e.g. toxicologists, ecotoxicologists, trial station managers and study directors). It will help you to put your work into context and see the bigger picture in which your experiments form an important piece, and help you answer questions like:

  • Why do we conduct trials and experiments as we do right now?

  • Why is the design of an efficacy trial so important?

  • Why do we need to know the plot size, the reference product, the pests and similar details?

  • Why are we using these specific animals for the toxicology studies?

  • What are the endpoints used for?
