2013: Focus on European Regulatory Affairs

The British Crop Production Council, in association with TSGE Forum, is very pleased to announce the 2013 BCPC Congress, to be held in Brighton at The Metropole Hotel on 1 and 2 October

The theme of the Congress will be the regulatory challenges to industry and consequences for agricultural production. The importance of understanding the nature and impact of EU Directives and Regulations has never been greater.

The Congress will include

•    presentations from industry, lawyers, specialists in the fields of plant protection regulatory affairs
•    an exhibition for industry, service providers and organisations concerned with the regulatory aspects of crop production and protection
•    networking opportunities and speed meetings

This is the ideal opportunity for the regulatory community to meet, learn and do business. We encourage manufacturers, formulators, distributors, service providers, researchers and other organisations to participate and make this the regulatory event of the year for our industry.
