College voor de toelating van gewasbeschermingsmiddelen en biociden

Invitation workshop on

Plant Protection Products- Biopesticides

A third date for the workshop Plant Protection Products – Biopesticides is set on Thursday October 12th.
(the workshops on Thursday September 21st and 28th are both fully booked).

Ctgb experts will provide the new Biopesticides Evaluation Manual and guide you through the dossier requirements for substances and products based on micro-organisms, botanicals and pheromones.

Please note that if the number of participants is not sufficient to fill up both workshops, only the workshop of September 21st, 2017 will take place (both days have the same programme). The workshop will be held in English.

To benefit most from the workshop, expert knowledge on biopesticides is recommended. The workshop is designed for regulatory affairs managers, regulatory affairs specialists and consultants. The workshop will begin at 10.00 h (registration opens at 9.30 h). For each topic, there will be adequate time allotted for discussion.
The afternoon will end with a networking reception.

The fee was originally € 450, but in the meantime the price is lowered to € 395, due to the fact that more people are attending than expected.
If you would like to participate, please fill out the registration form at the bottom, before August 10, 2017. Please note that attendance is limited to a maximum of 25 participants per workshop.

Soon, you can already consult the Evaluation Manual on the Ctgb website.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to contact Mrs. Jiske de Wolf by telephone at +31 (0)317 471840 or by email at
