It was in , when Ms Rachel Carson in her classic book “Silent Spring” highlighted the harmful effects of pesticides on environment. The subject has assumed greater importance today than ever before because of pesticides hazards to human health and environment.

    Current Activities for Developing Common Effects Methodology for Pesticides. A FIFRA (Federal insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act) Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) meeting was held in late January The FIFRA SAP is composed of biologists, statisticians, toxicologists and other experts who provide independent scientific advice to EPA.   The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has issued revised guidance for assessing the risks posed by pesticides to aquatic organisms - such as fish, amphibians, invertebrates and plants - living in ponds, ditches and streams next to fields that are treated with these substances. The guidance document, developed by EFSA’s Panel on Plant Protection Products and their Residues (PPR), .

Although pesticides are used on a local scale, their effects are ubiquitous and can be felt regionally and globally. They are transported into aquatic systems through processes such as direct applications, surface runoffs, spray drifts, agricultural returns and groundwater intrusions; either as single chemicals or complex mixtures [ 18 ].Cited by: 3.

Pesticides are supposed to complete their intended function without "any unreasonable risk to man or the environment".
