Planning of Field Trial Site Location: PreSSC

  • Minimising field trial

    In this scenario SSC is already integrated when planning the field trials for the BAD. 

    A chemical company plans i.e. to have a plant protection product registered in some European countries and orders its European offices with the execution of the necessary trials. 4-12 trials for each country (or a homogenous continental area) have to be planned over a two years period.

    To minimise the number of the cost-intensive trials, only such representative locations are chosen for which the SSC has proved that the field trial results of other sites cannot be transferred.

    Where the similarity of the trial sites was proved by a PreSSC the necessary long-lasting field trials become unnecessary.
