    Abstract

    The current risk assessment in the NL registration procedure for pesticides is focussed on the fate and effects at the edge-of-field scale. After application, a substantial part of the dosage may volatilise and be transported via the air over greater distances and deposited on nature conservation areas. At present no procedure exists to evaluate the risks of exposure to pesticides due to atmospheric deposition on these areas. That is why a proposal for the risk assessment of effects of atmospheric deposition on nature conservation areas is in preparation
