Dutch approvals body praised in review

An international visitation committee (IVC) has commended the Dutch board for the authorisation of plant protection products and biocides, the CTGB, for its efficiency and sound decision making. Consisting of experts from various EU countries, the IVC inspected the scientific and legal quality of the CTGB's decision-making process as well as its operational management. The committee did not find any instance where either a CTGB risk assessment opinion or a reviewed risk management decision was inadequately grounded. It found the CTGB to be well run, with significant resources and capacity. However, the IVC recommended a higher level of openness and transparency on the part of the CTGB.
