WEBINAR: The FAO Pesticide Registration Toolkit

Tuesday, 31 March 2020, 14:00 - 15:00 PM (Rome Time - CET)

The FAO Pesticide Registration Toolkit is a decision support system for pesticide registration authorities in low- and middle income countries, designed to assist in the evaluation and authorization of pesticides. It provides links to many pesticide-specific information sources such as registrations in other countries, scientific reviews, hazard classifications, labels, MRLs and pesticide properties. Various modules of Pesticide Registration Toolkit can be of use to those involved in the implementation of the Rotterdam Convention, in particular the Designated National Authorities (DNAs).
