Abstract

As part of the ‘Surface Waters Decision Tree’ project a new authorisation procedure for plant protection products (PPPs) has been developed. One element is a procedure for feedback of monitoring data to the authorisation holder and the PPP authorisation authority. This report describes the methodology to be adopted for this procedure. The feedback of monitoring results in the authorisation procedure consists of 3 main steps: 1. Identification and ranking of problematic substances 2. Causal analysis and composition of an Emission Reduction Plan (ERP) 3. Feedback procedure In this report, a methodology for all three steps is described. For the causal analysis within step 2, a more detailed protocol has been developed, based on realistic test cases. The format of the ERP is not defined by the Monitoring working group and therefore no part of this report. The procedure is applicable to active ingredients and metabolites of PPP, not to biocides, pharmaceuticals and (chemical) substances with other types of use.
