The General Food Law (GFL) is a significant piece of EU legislation that impacts plant protection product regulation by amending the rules on the protection of confidential business information and trade secrets. It also puts new obligations on applicants to register, with EFSA, new studies before they begin. TSG's latest seminar shows how the GFL impacts active substance renewals and new active substance approvals by going through the GFL legislation line by line, so that attendees will have a clear understanding of how to prepare for these new requirements.
With just over one year to prepare, the seminar is a timely and cost-effective way of keeping on top of the complexities of these new changes to the EU plant protection product legislation. If you want to be GFL ready, this is the seminar for you whether you are involved in product registration, manufacturing/supply chain or marketing.
