Commission proposal for a Regulation to replace Council Directive 91/414/EEC is
currently being negotiated. The current Directive provides the framework for the
authorisation and marketing of agricultural pesticides. The Regulation will update the
human and environmental safety ‘cut off’ criteria by which plant protection products are
approved. This may result in the prohibition of a significant number of synthetic
chemical pesticide products. Various non-chemical control methods can make valuable
contributions to crop protection. The aim of this briefing note is to provide information
on technologies that complement, or can be used as alternatives to, the application of
synthetic chemical pesticides.
