EU legislative framework on pesticides – a slow move towards sustainability

EU regulations have focused on chemical pesticides and the move towards sustainable solutions has been slow. This article by Dr Lars Huber (senior manager regulatory affairs, head of biorationals, fertiliser and IPM) from German regulatory consultancy SCC, traces the evolution of EU regulations and the gradual move towards sustainability.

On February 12th 2019, the European Parliament adopted a resolution on the implementation of sustainable use of pesticides by 546 to 39 votes. It was strongly critical of the lack of progress in the implementation of the EU sustainable pesticide use Directive (2009/128) and the economic loss of the added value of sustainability.
