Fifth international Akademie Fresenius Conference to discuss the provisions and approaches for the safe handling of pesticides

In order to get a product authorised, pesticide manufacturers have to check and assess whether the health of all those who come into contact with this product when distributing it really is guaranteed, assuming it is used as intended. The fifth international Akademie Fresenius Conference "Worker, Operator, Bystander and Resident Exposure and Risk Assessment" will be discussing all the latest regulatory, biological monitoring and risk mitigation questions. This conference will be taking place in Mainz (near Frankfurt)/Germany on 6 and 7 December. 

The organiser has been able to win the support of many acclaimed experts from the authorities, the research sector and the industry both at home and abroad for this event – which will not only be highlighting the current legal situation within the European Union but also exposure assessments for epidemiological studies. In addition, the current provisions on the labelling of pesticides contained in the ISO and EN standards are also on the agenda for discussion.
