As part of the Better Regulation Evaluation of the Sustainable Use of Pesticides Directive (SUD) and the impact assessment of its planned revision, DG SANTE launched, on 18 January 2021, an online public consultation asking stakeholders and members of the public to have their say on the sustainable use of pesticides.
This online consultation will remain open for responses until 12 April 2021
Stakeholders are being consulted on the achievements of the SUD, implementation, enforcement and application problems and their underlying causes and on possible ways forward and their impacts. The consultation aims to provide the stakeholders involved in the application of the SUD and the wider public with the opportunity to share their experiences. It allows respondents to express their views on possible ways to make the Directive work more efficiently or better achieve its objectives.
The SUD aims to achieve a sustainable use of pesticides in the EU by reducing the risks and impacts of pesticide use on human health and the environment and promoting the use of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and of alternative approaches or techniques, such as non-chemical alternatives to pesticides.
