Work Package 5 - Probabilistic approaches for use with typical datasets

Objective: Develop and evaluate probabilistic methods that are appropriate and practical for use with the types and quantities of data that are typically available for pesticide risk assessments.

There is a widespread perception that probabilistic approaches require large amounts of data, which would be difficult to justify for the majority of pesticide assessments. However, some probabilistic approaches are specifically designed for use when data are limited. Work Package 5 is therefore investigating which probabilistic approaches can be useful with typical pesticide datasets, how they might be used in the EU regulatory context, and potential obstacles to their adoption. It is also coordinating activities to test the approaches in case studies (Work Package 8) and other research. The results will be used to develop guidance on the use of probabilistic approaches with typical pesticide datasets.
