Regulatory Frameworks for Microbial Biopesticides in Sub-Saharan Africa
This document presents a distillation of best practice in a form appropriate to the registration of this type of pesticide in sub-Saharan Africa. It was reviewed and approved by the Technical Working Group and also peer reviewed independently. However, the author recognises that the regulatory processes recommended herein and the data requirements and other technical aspects of biopesticide registration needed to be ‘road tested’. This should be done in real or simulated registration activities using worked examples or relevant case studies. There was an opportunity for such ‘road testing’ during the trilateral meeting on atoxigenic Aspergillus flavus products between Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia in August 2013. The final version of the document includes an addendum on models for harmonised registration of microbial biopesticides based on the lessons learned from this event.
