The authorisation of pesticides in the Netherlands and Europe is based on environmental criteria. These criteria focus on the prevention of unacceptable risks when using pesticides under normal agricultural practice. Within this research programme methodologies en instruments (e.g. simulation models) are developed for the assessment of the exposure and effects of pesticides on non-target organisms and concentrations in ground and drinking water.
