Pesticide Registration Toolkit

Registrars in the Pacific use the Toolkit to discuss regional evaluation of pesticides

08/05/2017 - 12/05/2017

Pesticide registrars from 10 countries in the Pacific discussed far-reaching regional collaboration to strengthen the registration of pesticides. The meeting was held in Nadi, Fiji, from 8 – 12 May 2017, to review a draft memorandum of understanding among countries and the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), for the establishment of a Pacific Pesticide Registration and Management Scheme.
The FAO Pesticide Registration Toolkit was introduced during the meeting and participants practiced its navigation. Various modules of the Toolkit, such as decision making, registration strategies, assessment methods and information sources, were used to suggest methods that the proposed Regional Pesticide Advisory Committee can apply when conducting scientific evaluation of the pesticides submitted for registration in the Pacific.
