International Akademie Fresenius Online Training "Risk Assessment of PECsoil in the Evaluation Procedure in Europe"

2 March, 2022 - 9:45 am - 2 March, 2022 - 2:15 pm

This training is aiming to give you the basic knowledge on how to assess predicted environmental concentration of PPP and their active substances and metabolites in soil in the evaluation procedure in Europe. In a compact format of an intensive morning session, you will be familiarised with the philosophy of the new PECsoil guidance documents of EFSA and the related software packages to perform individual PECsoil calculations. Compared to the traditional methodology the new procedure for PECsoil includes scenarios for each of the three European zones. Furthermore, more processes are considered such as wash-off from crops and leaching to deeper soil layers. Finally, the PECsoil assessment is now embedded in a scheme of 4 different tiers including analytical and numerical models.
