The FAO Pesticide Registration Toolkit is a decision support system for pesticide registrars in developing countries. The Toolkit is an interactive, web-based, pesticide registration handbook for day-to-day use by pesticide registrars.
Registration staff can use the Toolkit to support several of their regular tasks, including: finding data requirements, evaluating technical aspects of the registration dossier, choosing an appropriate pesticide registration strategy and procedures, reviewing risk mitigation measures and getting advice on decision making. The Toolkit also links to many pesticide-specific information sources such as registrations in other countries, scientific reviews, hazard classifications, labels, MRLs and pesticide properties.
The Pesticide Registration Toolkit is being developed at the request of FAO Pest and Pesticide Management Team. Falconsult, in close collaboration with Envista Consultacy, coordinate the design and contents of the Toolkit and are responsible for the elaboration of its technical contents.
We developed training courses on the Toolkit and are involved in its global roll-out. Workshops were faciliated in Myanmar, the Caribbean, Cameroon, the Maghreb, the United Arab Emirates, Malawi and others.
