RegisGate is a cooperation of four institutions (Battelle, ECT, FoBiG and Hydrotox) to support authorisation of your biocidal products in Europe according to the Biocidal Product Regulation.
European legislation requires testing of parasiticides using, among others, dung beetles (OECD GD 122). Currently, Aphodius constans, a dweller species, has been approved as a test species for residues in dung. However, results of tests using A. constans may not be relevant for tunneler species.
The final reports of two projects, ’Substances of very high concern under REACH – an evaluation of uncertainties in the environmental risk assessment of endocrine active substances‘ and ‘Review and enhancement of new risk assessment concepts under REACH‘ have been published.

Coors A., Sacher F., Juffernholz T., Drost W., Gildemeister D., Kühnen U.: Human pharmaceuticals and industrial chemicals in wastewater effluents – first steps toward a combined risk assessment
Poster session: Waste and wastewater effluents: chemical and ecotoxicological characterization
The newly proposed EFSA guidance document on risk assessment for plant protection products for aquatic organisms1 recommends the Lumbriculus test (instead of the Chironomus test) specifically for pesticides with fungicidal activity. ECT coordinated the validation ring test for the Lumbriculus OECD test guideline […]
ECT celebrated its 20th anniversary party in the Senckenberg-Museum, Frankfurt, on 22 November 2013. We thank all our guests for the great time we have had together among the dinosaurs!
According to European legislation, an environmental risk assessment of veterinary medicinal products for dung fauna is required for parasiticides used to treat pasture animals. In the past, the demonstration of environmental safety of those parasiticides for dung fauna was hampered by the fact that no standardised tests were available. Therefore, test systems for evaluating effects […]
ECT presented its work and activities at its own booth. Due to good experiences made, we will offer our services in the same way at the next SETAC Europe conference.
M. Weil is chairing the session ‘Nanomaterials’.
