Warning on resources burden of EU agchem strategy

EU member states will require considerable staff and funding resources to implement forthcoming EU rules on integrated pest management, concludes a study carried out by German consultancy BiPRO for the European Commission's Environment Directorate General. In order to make all the planned aspects of IPM operational, member states will have to provide "manifold" information to users, regulators and the public. They will have to update and reconsider this information "continuously". Provision of qualified advisory services, training for users and compliance monitoring will also be important for the new systems to work, BiPRO says. IPM rules are part of the proposed EU strategy on sustainable use of pesticides, which is due to be implemented in 2010 ( Agrow No 560, p 6).
