All countries have their own regulatory processes for the authorisation of agrochemicals, and companies must develop individual data packages for each to gain regulatory approval for each crop/pest combination and distribute in their region. This has made it difficult for regulators to cooperate when companies are applying for in multiple countries and has ultimately contributed to low application rates and environmental complications. The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has offered a solution to this through developing the tools for a single global data package which can be used for submissions in multiple countries, with the aim of attaining a harmonised approach in the regulation of agrochemicals in almost 200 countries.
Save time, money and minimise risk to the environment, human and animal health by exploring the harmonised approach of the OECD on this interactive online academy. Over 4 weeks you will tackle the regulatory complications for agricultural submissions by analysing the mechanisms of the single global data packed created by the OECD.
After graduating with a PhD in Cell Biology, Dr Imme Gerke designed and led a project in biological pest management in Madagascar. She has since gone on to found a Biotechnology company in Quebec which registered its first product in 2000 (VIROSOFT CP4) in Canada and the US simultaneously. In 2002, Health Canada invited her to take on the role as Canadian Minor Use Advisor at the pest Management Regulatory Agency.

The experience of the trainer on the topic in the different parts of the world was wonderful. Very good approach.
I found the course very helpful in terms of giving me a more clear idea of the agrochemical market around the world...I think Imme has a huge knowledge on the subject so her everyday/real life examples were very useful to me. I would definitely consider taking another course on a related topic, this is good for beginners.
