Global Pesticide Registration

Registering pesticides internationally has become more complex due to the increased data requirements among industrialized nations such as the U.S., 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.

A growing number of developing countries are implementing the Food and Agriculture Organization's (FAO) International Code of Conduct on Pesticide Use and Distribution, which means an increase in the registration requirements in these countries. Furthermore, the reregistration of older pesticides previously approved in the U.S. 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 offers international registration assistance in a number of areas. This includes advising manufacturers on the requirements necessary to register new pesticides and obtain experimental use permits outside the U.S., as well as assisting non-U.S. firms seeking North American regulatory support. Our reputation with U.S. regulatory agencies in these areas is unparalleled, which can help position offshore manufacturers to acquire significant U.S. markets for their products. We offer comprehensive registration services, including data requirement determination, regulatory strategy development, cost analysis and registration coordination in Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, Australia, New Zealand and India.

In addition, our staff is well-versed in multi-jurisdictional registrations. TSG’s unique global insight can provide significant advantages to companies registering a pesticide in multiple countries. Our experience and expertise allow us to work with companies to develop an optimal strategy that takes into account the coordination of data development, label and marketing claims, and concurrent registration opportunities to save time and money for multi-jurisdictional registrations. TSG coordinates these global registrations through offices and staff in various countries, including
Europe (TSGE – United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Slovenia, Poland), Canada (TSG Canada) and China.
