Achieving both productivity and safety improvements through better regulation


The 2017 BCPC Congress will be held at the Hilton Metropole Brighton on 31 October – 1 November.

On Day 1, there will be presentations and discussions, in plenary and streamed sessions, on the current EU regulatory environment for plant protection products (chemicals and bio-pesticides) – and how this may change in the EU and the UK post-Brexit. A number of speakers, from the UK, EU and US will address the key issue of whether a more risk assessment-based regulatory approach for agrochemicals and agricultural biotechnology can simultaneously achieve improved safeguards for health, the environment and crop production than does the current EU regime. A parallel session will cover a range of popular technical highlights.

On Day 2, the UK HSE Chemicals Regulation Division will hold an interactive workshop seeking further opinion from delegates on the direction of policy and implementation of a post-Brexit UK-based regulatory regime for chemical and biological pesticides. This will input to HSE’s initiative to understand the needs and concerns of stakeholders as a new system is developed.

Combined with a Drinks Reception on the 30 October and Congress Dinner on the 31 – marking the 50th Anniversary of BCPC’s support for science in UK Crop Production – the 2017 event will, more than ever, be thought-provoking, educational and supportive for the crop protection regulatory community.
