In the regulatory framework of registration of plant protection products, the evaluation of their effects on non-target organisms is an important aspect of the assessment of potential risks. In order to demonstrate acceptable uses, predicted environmental concentrations of a substance are compared with its dose-related effects on representative organisms: Birds and mammals, aquatic organisms, non-target arthropods incl. bees, soil macro- and micro-organisms and non-target plants are considered in the assessment.
