When an authorisation holder wants to sell a plant protection product in Belgium, it must first be able to demonstrate that the product is effective. The efficacy of a plant protection product must be supported by scientific studies. These studies must comply with certain quality standards and international guidelines. A GEP (Good Experimental Practices) quality standard was specifically created for this purpose. Carrying out these trials under the GEP quality label guarantees that the research is carried out accurately and in accordance with European guidelines. The Research Centre Hoogstraten is a GEP (Good Experimental Practices) recognised institution and obtained this quality label in July 2007. Prior to this, audits were carried out by the Flemish Government in order to check and adjust the procedures underlying the GEP label. Research conducted with the GEP quality label enables the accreditation of plant protection products.
