The registration of plant protection products in the European Union follows the process laid down in the Regulation (EC) No.1107/2009 (which replaced Directive 91/414/EEC) and entered into force on the 14th June 2011. The directives aim is to harmonise the registration of plant protection products across the EU, as well as introducing some new requirements. Many important changes were introduced in this new regulation, with perhaps the most important one being the introduction of the zonal system with mutual recognition, hazard based criteria, assessment of cumulative and synergistic effects, comparative assessment and endocrine disruption.
