Biotecnologie BT: from the laboratory to the drafting of European guidelines on biostimulants
Our team of the Microbiological Unit of Biotecnologie BT has joined a Working Group within the Technical Commission of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN / TC 455 on Plant Biostimulants) created to define European standards for all biostimulant products.
Specifically, we are part of the Working Group CEN / TC 455 / WG 3 “Pathogenic and non-pathogenic microorganisms” within which we are present as project leaders in charge of drafting guidelines for the research and quantification of pathogenic and non-pathogenic microorganisms (active ingredients) in biostimulant products.
In addition, within this working group, as a Microbiological Unit, we participated in the call for tender for the execution of inter-laboratory studies aimed at the experimental verification of the draft guidelines.
We have been chosen and nominated for 11 projects, and attending the next meeting in Paris this June 2022.
Moreover, we also participate in the Italian Working Group “BIOSTIMULANTS” – UNI / CT406 / GL04 ”
This participation in the European and Italian meetings for the definition of guidelines on biostimulants is a reason for us to be proud but above all it is the recognition of our consolidated skills and in-depth knowledge in the field of biopesticides based on microorganisms.
If you want more information on the “CEN / TC 455 on Plant Biostimulants” or on the services we offer for the registration of biopesticides based on microorganisms, contact us, we will be glad to introduce you to our expertise.
