REFIT Evaluation of the EU Legislation on Plant Protection Products and Pesticides Residues

The general objective of this Regulatory Fitness and Performance (REFIT) evaluation is to perform an evidence-based assessment of the implementation of the legislation on plant protection products and pesticides residues. The results of the evaluation will be the basis on which the Commission will draft the report to the European Parliament and the Council on the implementation of the plant protection products and pesticides residues legislation. The evaluation could be useful to improve the implementation on the EU rules on pesticides and might trigger legislative proposals in this policy area. For the purpose of this evaluation a consultation strategy will take place, with the involvement of Members of the Advisory Group for the Food Chain; with targeted stakeholders; with a survey for SMEs; with targeted consultations of authorities in the Member States and third countries; and with a public consultation to be published online.
