In order to obtain a recognition for the use of fytosanitary products in various cultures trials need to be executed following the guidelines of the ministry act of 07.04.1995 (European guideline 91/414/EEG).

The guidelines contain an entire book of prescriptions and procedures that have to be respected in research to get the use of products in crop protection legally recognised.

For this specific reason a GEP quality norm became active (= Good Experimental Practices) that has to be fulfilled to exercise this kind of research. Trials under an GEP quality label guarantees research in an accurate manner and a contemplation according to the European guidelines.

Research Centre Hoogstraten obtained the quality label in July 2007. Before hand audits of the Flemish Government made sure the necessary procedures that state the base of the GEP label were complete and up to date.

The GEP quality label is not only used in research to get products for crop protection recognised. The label is spread in the mean time over other research items. The controle in performing according to the label is internally done by the quality coordinator Mme. Inge Van Looveren. Please do not hesitate to contact us if there are any questions in this matter.
