Degradation Kinetics

A FOCUS Degradation Kinetics Workgroup was active from 2002 to 2006. This workgroup developed recommendations for calculating degradation kinetics in the registration process at EU and MS level.

 Overview This website contains all available material developed by the FOCUS Degradation Kinetics Workgroup:
  • the report of the workgroup
  • a package of presentations and exercises used in two trainings organised by the workgroup
  • a spreadsheet containing software for fitting results of degradation rate studies with a parent compound in soil
