The aim of the Workshop is to invite policy and scientific experts in order to provide their technical knowledge on the main aspects of the Commission proposal for a Directive on Machinery for Pesticide Application. The Workshop will examine the existing International and European standards applicable on pesticide application machinery, and discuss how the proposed environmental requirements for new machinery can be improved in order to guarantee a high standard of protection while ensuring a level playing field for manufacturers and fair competition in the internal market.
