Plant Protection Products
The Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food and Environment (VKM) will assess the representativeness of Forum for Coordination of pesticide fate models and their Use (FOCUS) scenarios for available surface water scenarios for pesticide risk assessment in Norway.
The Norwegian Food Safety Authority (NFSA) requires this knowledgebase as part of a review and eventual upgrade of the current risk assessment methodology.
The NFSA asks VKM to assess the following objectives:
Ole Martin Eklo – member of the VKM Panel on plant protection products (chair)
Tor Fredrik Holth - member of the VKM Panel on plant protection products
Michael Klein – external expert from Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME, Germany
Nana Yaa Boahene – Project manager, VKM-secretariat
The Panel on plant protection products is responsible for the assessment. The report is expected to be published in December 2020.
