The Advisory Committee on Crop Protection Chemistry (a Subcommittee of Division VI) provides unbiased and authoritative views regarding environmental and human health aspects of crop protection chemistry through its projects and outreach activities. Projects are undertaken by internationally diverse teams from government, academia and industry and provide critical assessments and specific technical or policy recommendations for an area of crop protection chemistry. Primary areas of emphasis include definitions, methodologies, and regulations. Outreach activities help move IUPAC project outcomes outside the small circle of specialists and into the broader scientific and regulatory arena, with a strong emphasis on technology transfer to developing countries. These outreach activities include periodic workshops focused on a specific set of regional issues related to crop protection chemistry and a quadrennial IUPAC International Congress of Crop Protection Chemistry which serves to highlight state-of-the-art scientific advances and regulatory approaches.
