The BCPC Congress 2015

The 2015 BCPC Congress continues to develop following two successful years since its reintroduction to Brighton. This year’s event is aimed toward all stakeholders in the crop protection industry across Europe including manufacturers and formulators of pesticide and biopesticide products, marketing organisations, consultants, contract laboratories, academics, industry and grower associations.

The 2015 Congress is entitled “A Positive Outlook for the Regulation of Pesticides in Europe”. A challenging topic but one in which delegates can hear from, and discuss with, experts on solutions to the complex and arguably onerous regulatory environment. The challenges are well documented and repeated in similar events. However, we aim to acquire a collective note of optimism for the future of the industry.

We will again deliver a programme of relevant, engaging presentations from influential industry and government representatives, academics, lawyers and leading consultants. As an example, the 2015 sessions will cover:

  • Mainstream regulatory activities (both for chemicals and biopesticides) associated with Regulation 1107/2009 and the Water Framework Directive
  • Developments in human and environmental health
  • Current regulatory “hotspots”
  • Special topics such as:
    • the role of pesticides in modern, sustainable agriculture
    • lessons on public acceptance (reference to GM crop trials
    • Innovation principle

Our exhibition will again provide a lively and interesting networking space for all delegates and there will also be a Pre Event Welcome Drinks Reception and a Congress Dinner. The 2015 BCPC Congress will be held at the Hilton Metropole, Brighton, UK on 6-7 October.

6 October 2015 to 7 October 2015
