It can be used as a training and reference tool for pesticide registration authorities in order to provide assistance for decision making. The Toolkit can also be considered as a decision support system for registration authorities in developing countries. This workshop aimed at enhancing pesticide regulatory management capacity in Asian countries, sharing data and experience and expanding knowledge on pesticide registration.
