CRD: Two Day Workshop on Technical Fate and Behaviour Assessment of Plant Protection Products – York, 29-30 Nov 2016

HSE’s Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD) is pleased to
announce its plant protection products and biocides conference and
events programme for 2016/2017.  This year we have expanded
the programme to take account of stakeholder feedback obtained from
the 2015/16 events programme.

We are committed to communicating effectively with our
stakeholders.  One of the ways in which we are able to keep
our stakeholders up to date is through the delivery of our
conference and events programme.   During 2016/17, we
will be hosting a wide range of events which are aimed at providing
training and updates on many aspects of pesticide, biocide, and
chemical regulation.

Our proposed schedule of events for 2016/17 is listed
below.  If you are interested in attending any of the events
or require further information please email our events team at events.CRD@hse.gov.uk.

to register your interest.


Bespoke Training for Individual Organisations

In addition to running our general training programme, CRD also
offers bespoke training for individual organisations on both
technical and procedural matters. The main benefit to the delivery
of bespoke training is that the training is specifically tailored
to meet your organisation’s individual needs and enables you to
address specific problem areas that are relevant to your
organisation. This training can be delivered at our offices in
York, or at a location of your choice.

CRD has previously organised the following bespoke training
events for various organisations and Member States:

  • Co-ordination Procedures
  • Physical/Chemical Properties
  • Fate Behaviour
  • Consumer Risk Assessment Residues
  • Operator Exposure
  • Dermal Absorption

If you would be interested in discussing the possibility of CRD
providing your organisation with a tailor-made training programme,
or if you would simply like us to deliver an existing training
programme at your office, please contact Jon Winfield by emailing
jon.winfield@hse.gov.uk.

In accordance with our financial remit, HSE has to recover costs
for the work it delivers. Consequently, a charge would have to be
made for the preparation and delivery of the training, and any
associated travel and subsistence costs.

Please note that CRD will not be able to provide advice on
specific application work as part of the bespoke service. Such
queries should be dealt with in the usual manner.
