TPI innovation network: safe harbour for plant protection products

RIVM has formulated a roadmap for animal-free innovations in regulatory safety assessment (PIRV). One of the items on this roadmap is the creation of “safe harbours” for the admission of certain substances.

A safe harbour is a safe environment for researchers, companies and organisations to exchange data. This environment will make it easier for the business community and government bodies to join forces when it comes to developing animal-free innovations for safety assessments.

A specific objective of this TPI innovation network is to investigate ways of developing a safe harbour for plant protection products.

The network launched in January 2019. It is coordinated by RIVM.
