The BCPC Congress 2019
Date: 19-20 November 2019
Location: Brighton, UK
TSG Consulting’s Dr Mike Carroll, Principal Plant Protection Consultant, and Stephen Ruckman, Head of Human Health, will be speaking on day one of this year’s BCPC Congress – “Understanding the demands and opportunities of a ‘Green Brexit’ – how do we deliver food production alongside environmental enhancement?”
In his presentation titled “GLP, Trade Secrets and Regulatory Transparency: where do we go from here”, Mike will cover recent developments in Brexit and GLP, as well as discuss the impact of the new EU legislation on transparency and sustainability, which reforms the EU’s General Food Law. From 2021 onwards, confidential business information and trade secrets will become a privilege and not a right as they are today. If a company loses a trade secret in Europe, it will lose it globally. Mike will help delegates gain clarity on what the changes mean and the actions companies can be taking to prepare for its implementation.
Later on in the day, Stephen will discuss endocrine disruption, outlining the key considerations companies need to explore in complying with the endocrine disruptor criteria contained within Plant Protection Product Regulation. In his talk “Endocrine disruption: science and regulatory significance”, Stephen will use a case study approach to illustrate that it may not be a straight path from endocrine disruptor activity to adverse event.

Organised by TSGE Forum, this year’s BCPC Congress will encompass a wide range of topics supporting the theme of how intensification of food production can be reconciled with environmental protection or enhancement, whatever the UK’s future relationship with the EU. Sessions will explore the science and technology relating to the national debate on how to support UK farming and food production whilst meeting the highest environmental standards.
