Access: • Homologa is a password protected online database, accessible via Internet with annual subscription. Modular subscriptions are available for individual modules, crop-groups and countries. • There are several ways to access the database: • Online interrogation with immediate reports • Offline standard reports. The address from where the report can be downloaded is sent via e-mail. The frequency of the updates can be set on weekly, monthly, and quarterly. • Customized regular data downloads for transferring data to other databases. Language: English Updates: • Approved products: depending on the country between 1 update per year and monthly updates • Mrls: On a weekly basis Source of information: Ministries who publish the corresponding information in their internet database, from the legal publications or from label information. Often not all information is published and it needs further search on the labels. Possible users of Homologa: • Plant Protection Industry • Organizations responsible for registrations and the establishment of mrls • Organizations working on minor crop issues • Food producers/exporters/importers • Food chain consultants/Food Quality Managers • Laboratories Certification: ISO9001 By Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems, a member of IQNet. www.iqnet-certification.com Contact: AGROBASE-LOGIGRAM Archamps Business Park,Bâtiment Athéna I 74160, Archamps (FRANCE) Tel/Fax: (+33) (0)4 50 35 07 19 / (0)4 50 35 07 26 firstname.lastname@example.org www.homologa.com Distributors: THE FOOD AND ENV.

Update schedule for registered products and content and available details: *GAP-Info: Good Agricultural practice information contains max. dose rate, max number of treatments and pre-harvest interval. 2. Examples: 2.1. Which 2.4-D herbicides are registered in corn in Hungary, Slovakia and Ukraine? 2.1. Which 2.4-D herbicides are registered in corn in Hungary, Slovakia and Ukraine? 2.3 Show all Cypermethrin registrations worldwide 2.4 Where is Tembotrione registered, in which crops? 2.5. Which products can be used against mites in Hops? 2.6. Which dose rate is registered and which pre-harvest interval is set? Country: Germany Product: ENVIDOR Crop Stage Target Min Dose Max Dose Unit Max no of sprays PHI Apples BBCH 51-57 Tetranychus 0.2 0.2 l/ha 1 24 Apples From infection Tetranychus 0.2 0.2 l/ha 1 24 2.7. Risk Phrases: 2.8 Product expiries: When certain active ingredients should not be used anymore? The active level information is extrapolated from the formulated product level. 2.9. Compare maximum residue levels (mrls) for tomatoes worldwide 2.10. Match product registrations and mrl of a food producer country with mrls of import country: Homologa allows also matching registered products in a producer country with the mrls of the producer country and the import countries. 1. Comparison Glyphosate in beans in Canada and Japan: Active ingredient Crop Canada mrl Japan mrl Glyphosate Bean-broad 2 ppm Glyphosate Bean-broad: Dry 4 ppm The mrl in beans for Glyphosate in Japan is half as high as in Canada. If Glyphosate is applied as recommended in Canada, there is a risk of too high residues when exported to Japan. 2. Comparison of Glyphosate use patterns in Canada and Japan Country Trade Name Active(s) Company Crop Stage Canada Cutter LI Glyphosate Monsanto Beans: Dry Pre-harvest Canada Bronco HC Glyphosate Monsanto Beans: Dry Pre-plant Japan Roundup Max Load Glyphosate Nissan Beans: Dry Pre-plant Glyphosate is registered in Japan only at the application time ‘pre-emergence’ whereas it can be used in Canada as well as a pre-harvest treatment. This explains the different mrls in both countries. 3. What can be done? Find alternative solutions. What are the other available actives in both countries? As an alternative active Bialaphos is available but not registered in Canada. Diquat, Paraquat and Glufosinate are registered in both countries. What are the mrls for these actives? Active ingredient Crop Canada mrl Japan mrl Glufosinate Bean: Dry 2 ppm Conclusion: • Glyphosate should not be used in pre-harvest • An alternative desiccant is Glufosinate • If Glufosinate is used as a desiccant it should not be used for anything else. There is a risk to exceed Canadian mrls. 2.11. Other examples for using Homologa: For the first time, language barriers and infrastructure limitations have been overcome so that it is now possible: • to verify if and to which degree the use patterns in one country compare to the use patterns in other countries • to compare the regulatory approaches in other countries with the approaches that are either in force or in development in the user’s own country. • to be able to validate statements made by stakeholder groups about the pesticide uses in other countries and to develop national and international collaborations based on common interests with other countries • to support professional users in the identification of new pest control products and of use patterns on identical and comparable crops • to identify new active ingredients and/or formulations that growers in other countries have access to • to identify new and alternate active ingredients for the control of pests that are currently not at or inadequately controlled • to identify active ingredients for the replacement of pesticides that are currently in use but have been identified as being of concern to Human Health and the Environment • to compare identify use patterns that are successfully applied in other countries • to data mine for existing studies with the goal to minimize the need for new studies and to work towards international harmonization • to ensure that new international markets will not be blocked due to differential pesticide registrations (such blockages are not considered by the WTO because the registration and regulation of pesticides are national concerns) • to identify pest control products for invasive pests from countries in which these pests are already known • to develop crop/country specific compliance strategies for imported goods especially from developing countries where the pest management is less well regulated • to specifically check crops from countries that have registrations and/or use pesticides that are not registered in the user’s country. • to identify the countries in which active ingredients of concern to the user’s country are or have been registered or banned. • public and private crop/pest specialists to have easy access to alternate pest control options, use patterns in foreign countries.
