The NAFTA Technical Working Group on Pesticides sponsored a Biopesticide Registration Improvement Course (BRIC) at USEPA offices at Potomac Yard, Arlington, Virginia on April 13-15, 2011. BRIC, a special overview and trouble-shooting course, was intended to serve as a building block for constructing a sound foundation for a biopesticide registration application. About 50 biopesticide applicants, consultants, researchers and registrants attended the course. Another 70+ participated via webinar.
Canada, Mexico and the United States are committed to working together on an international level to mainstream biopesticide reviews and to encourage registrants to submit biopesticide registration applications to all three countries whenever possible.
