Online Academy

Ecotoxicology is an essential practice which studies the effects toxic chemicals pose on biological organisms. Agrochemical companies are required to perform an ecotoxicological risk assessment to evaluate the effect their product will impose on the environment, with the aim to reduce and monitor the effects of pollution. As a mandatory requirement to the regulators and to the ecosystem surrounding the product, it is imperative to ensure you conduct your assessments effectively.

This course offers a comprehensive overview of both aquatic and terrestrial environments and will provide an overview of the European regulatory guidelines, data requirements and changes in guidance.

  • Evaluate EU data requirements for ecotoxicology and outline upcoming changes to regulations
  • Understand the relationship between risk assessments and environmental fate data
  • Assess the specific risk assessments for aquatic organisms and terrestrial organisms, including bees
  • Explore the key developments and updates for endocrine disruptors
  • Gaining a better understanding of modelling techniques and applications
  • Develop your awareness of global ecotoxicology requirements
  • Learn what to expect from future guidance documents and test guidelines
