Evaluation Manual Biopesticides
Version 1.4, published July 2022
The Evaluation Manual Biopesticides describes in detail the data requirements and risk assessment for biopesticides. Especially for botanicals and semiochemicals (like pheromones) this manual should be read in conjunction with the EU legislation, the Evaluation Manual EU part and national elements, which is dealing with the conventional (chemical) plant protection products, i.e. part A of the data requirements.
There are separate European guidelines for plant extracts and semiochemicals. Microorganisms (including viruses) have specific data requirements. The Evaluation manual Biopesticides is supplementary to existing guidelines.
