The EU Annual Pesticide Residues Report – Paula Medina Pastor

Friday March 11, 2022

Pesticides – or plant protection products – are a reality of modern times. These chemicals must be strictly regulated to ensure their use does not harm human and animal health and the environment.

How do we do this?

The European Union has an authorisation procedure involving three partners: EFSA, the European Commission and Member States. Pesticide applications from industry pass along a chain formed of these three parties – with each one carrying out specific tasks. EFSA's role is to carry out risk assessments of pesticides and to provide the European Commission and Member States with scientific support in the decision-making process.
