4-week online academy

Understand how to effectively apply the new EU criteria to your plant protection product

Course Overview

Endocrine Disruptors are chemicals that may interfere with the body’s endocrine system and produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neuroglial and immune effects in both humans and wildlife. In 2018, the legislation in Europe for endocrine disruptors was updated to ensure commitment to the safety of the environment and with it, human and animal health.

Over the course of 4 weeks you will gain a comprehensive introduction to endocrine disruptors, learning about the regulatory framework and documentation procedures which comply with the updated scientific criteria for plant protection products and biocides. In addition, you will learn about the practical implications of generating, collecting and analysing data alongside the challenges associated with it.
