4-week online academy

Harmonise your agrochemical regulatory procedures to achieve global compliance by understanding the guidance of the OECD

Course Overview

All countries have their own regulatory processes for the authorisation of agrochemicals, and companies must develop individual data packages for each to gain regulatory approval for every crop/pest combination they distribute in that region. This has made it challenging for all stakeholders when companies are applying in multiple countries and has ultimately contributed to low application rates and environmental complications.

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has offered a solution to this by developing the tools for a single global data package that can be used for submissions in multiple countries, with the aim of attaining a harmonised approach in the regulation of agrochemicals in almost 200 countries.

Save time and money, and minimise risk to the environment, human and animal health by exploring the harmonised approach of regulatory submission on this interactive online academy. Over 4 weeks you will tackle the regulatory complications for agricultural submissions by analysing the mechanisms of the single global data-packed created by the OECD.
