EU/US seek agchem co-operation in TTIP talks

The EU and the US have agreed to continue expert-level talks on regulatory co-operation in pesticide areas such as harmonisation of maximum residue limits, extrapolation of field study results, and “global zoning”. This was one outcome of the tenth negotiating round for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) in July.

It has always maintained that there would be no weakening of the EU’s strict safety requirements for agrochemicals.
