Agrochemical: Achieving Plant Protection Product registrations under EU Legislation

The European regulatory approvals process for agrochemical active substances and their products is complex, time-consuming and ever-changing. So, when your organisation is struggling with a heavy workload, navigating the approvals process adds an extra burden on your team’s time. Especially if they’re unfamiliar with the product regulation process – just one mistake or omission can add weeks or months to rectify.

However, as an LKC client, you’ll benefit from our technical expertise and regulatory knowledge (Regulation 1107/2009 being a key one), helping your products to be approved faster. We can then assist your entry and maintained presence in the EU’s agrochemical market, aided by our good relations with EU regulators, the EFSA, and other advisory organisations. LKC’s specialists will guide your team throughout the process.
