2 Day Virtual Training Course: Degradation Kinetics Assessment of Laboratory and Field Studies to Obtain DegT50 Values According to FOCUS and EFSA Guidance.

This 2-day virtual training course will feature power point presentations, discussions as well as hands-on, practical exercises that demonstrate the principles and concepts of degradation kinetics assessment of active substances of plant protection products and the transformation products of the active substances, as well as the practical application in the EU regulatory process. The virtual training course will cover:

• Various types of degradation kinetic models, data processing and assessment of goodness-of-fit.

• Degradation kinetics assessment of soil and water/sediment studies to derive: (i) persistence endpoints, and (ii) modelling endpoints according to FOCUS and EFSA guidance using current version of CAKE v3.4.

• Normalisation procedures for laboratory and field soil DegT50 /DT50 values to reference conditions.

• Estimations of modelling endpoints from laboratory and field soil DegT50 values according to EFSA guidance.

• Comprehensive course notes and tutorials covering the above topics with many practical exercises and worked examples to assist all participants in the application of degradation kinetics principles, concepts and procedures as outlined in the FOCUS and EFSA guidance in EU regulatory process. 

When?
