Dear readers,

The beginning of the year was quite calm regarding regulatory publications.

In Europe, AIR 3 and AIR 4 Guidance Documents (GD) were updated, as well as the GD on Human Health risk assessment. At last the Guidance on the establishment of the residue definition was published.

In France, the list of spray drift reduction equipment was updated again and 2 public consultations were launched: one on neonicotinoids and one on the new Order on PPPs use.

We summarised this information for you throughout articles that you will find below.
We hope you enjoy reading these notes and stay at your disposal for regulatory advice and dossier drafting.
