Environmental monitoring has been used to formulate general pesticide policies and monitor their progress. Recently, the role of monitoring results in authorisation decisions has gained importance, although still uncertainties about implementation and criteria exist. There are inherent challenges in demonstrating the appropriateness of monitoring results for this use. Abstracts relevant to environmental monitoring are invited, including those that consider:

  •    Linking monitoring results to actual use
  •    Appropriate monitoring strategies in relation to pesticide authorisation
  •    Pesticide risk indicators based on monitoring results
