BCPC Congress 2014 concludes on a high note

The 2014 BCPC Congress ended on a high note with plans already in progress to stage a third event, following the same format, in 2015.

“It was very gratifying to see an increased number of participants of both delegates and exhibitors in the second year of the refocused BCPC Congress,” said Dr Colin Ruscoe, Chairman of BCPC at the close of the event. “Clearly the formula, providing a mixture of updates on EU regulations and an overview of political and social drivers in the regulatory environment, works.”

“The Congress is certainly starting to get an international following which this year had delegates from mainland Europe as well as North Africa and Australasia,” revealed Dr. Louis Wyness, Managing Director, TSGE Forum.  “It also seems to be gaining a reputation as the place to be for the crop protection regulatory community and stakeholders to meet for exchange of information and the opportunity to network. We were delighted to offer an innovative programme with leading experts addressing the Congress theme –‘European Regulatory Affairs: Precaution or Innovation?’.

The plenary presentations on Day One, delivered by Dr. Peter Maienfisch, Syngenta Crop Protection; Paul Leonard, BASF Group, focussed on the ‘Precautionary and Innovation principles’. Professor Joyce Tait, Director Innogen Institute returned this year to deliver a plenary address at the start of Day Two and a concluding plenary session resulted in some stimulating discussion from the audience during questions and answers.

The congress dinner, held on the evening of Day One of the Congress at the Mercure Hotel, Brighton, just along the promenade from the Congress venue, proved very popular with over 90 people sitting down for further discussion and networking.
