The European Commission, DG VI, has published a call for tender for research activities relating to the authorization of plant-protection products. The required services concern proposals for the coordination of the review programme for existing and new plant-protection products in the context the following: - Council Directive 91/414/EEC concerning the placing of plant-protection products on the market; - Commission Regulation (EEC) 3600/92 laying down the detailed rules for the implementation of the first stage of the work programme referred to in Article 8 (2) of Council Directive 91/414/EEC concerning the placing of plant-protection products on the market; - Commission Regulation (EEC) 933/94 laying down the active substances of plant-protection products and designating the rapporteur Member States for the implementation of Commission Regulation (EEC) 3600/92. The work will involve organizing and reporting on meetings of a highly technical and scientific nature, with experts of the competent authorities of the Member States, and will require a significant scientific and technical input into these meetings. The objective of the meetings will be twofold: - To develop guideline and criteria documents relating to the evaluation of plant-protection products; - To peer review Member States' reports, with experts of the competent authorities of the 15 Member States, in order to prepare the necessary technical and scientific dossiers for the decision-making procedure in the Standing Committee on Plant Health (SCPH).
