In 2016, as part of the implementation of the Act "for the restoration of biodiversity, nature and landscapes” and as requested by the Ministries of Agriculture, Health and Ecology, ANSES initiated an assessment weighing up the risks and benefits of plant protection products containing neonicotinoids, compared with their chemical and non-chemical alternatives. Today, ANSES is publishing its final opinion. For most uses of plant protection products containing neonicotinoids, sufficiently effective and operational chemical and non-chemical alternatives were identified.
