What are the difficulties in registering a pesticide product internationally?
Registering pesticides internationally has become more complex due to the increased data requirements among industrialized nations such as the US, Japan and the European Union (EU) member states. The lack of uniform Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) standards only complicates the acceptability of studies in different countries. In addition, language barriers can cause difficulties in registering products for different countries. TSG’s diverse consulting staff have the necessary language skills and contacts to coordinate registrations world-wide, ensuring that language or registration agent issues will not hinder product registration.

An increasing number of developing countries are implementing the Food and Agriculture Organization's (FAO) International Code of Conduct on Pesticide Use and Distribution. This means an increase in the registration requirements in these countries. Moreover, the reregistration of older pesticides previously approved in the US and EU requires manufacturers to assume significant burdens of proof of product health and environmental safety in the form of data, analyses and risk assessments. TSG advises manufacturers on the requirements necessary to register new pesticides, reregister existing pesticides and obtain experimental use permits outside the US.
