Fera’s Bee Ecotoxicology Testing Services: Trust the internationally recognised bee experts for your PPP safety testing needs
Feb. 27, 2018
The most recent EFSA Guidance Document proposes a tiered risk assessment scheme including non-Apis species (Bombus spp. (Bumble bees) and solitary bees) as well as honey bees (Apis mellifera). This guidance will likely be followed by new regulations making the tiered risk assessment scheme mandatory. Although this guidance document has not yet been formally accepted into the legislative framework the data requirements are clearly set out in the current legislation – Commission Regulations (EU) Nos 283/2013 and 284/2013 (data requirements for active substances and PPPs respectively) and therefore receiving authorities will expect this data.
From standard laboratory studies to bespoke higher tier studies to address specific risk assessment needs, Fera’s experts are perfectly placed to meet any data requirements to help its partners develop products that are safe for bees and other pollinators. Fera works closely and is co-located with the National Bee Unit and has 150 colonies of honey bees alongside a highly skilled bee keeping team on site to support its partner’s risk assessments.
• Co-located with the National Bee Unit.
