To ensure that the use of plant protection products is as sustainable and low-risk as possible, users of such products should regularly refresh their knowledge. One way of doing this is to set a time limit on professional licenses and to introduce an obligation to undergo further training. We supported the Federal Office for the Environment FOEN in the economic assessment of various legal implementation options and in the evaluation of the public consultation on the proposed amendments to the relevant ordinances.
- Developing an economic assessment of the proposed measures (ex-ante evaluation) based on interviews and expert opinions
- Assessing the impact of various regulatory options on the environment, the economy and society, in accordance with the requirements of the FOEN guidelines for ex-ante evaluations
- Supporting the evaluation of the public consultation on the proposal: recording and structuring the comments and amendments using a methodology developed by EBP, and structuring and documenting them in a concise report
