The general objective of this study is to perform an evidence-based assessment of the implementation of the Directive 2009/128/EC on the sustainable use of pesticides, as a whole as well as some of its specific elements.
According to this approach, the following specific objectives of the study can be defined as follow:
- To analyse each phase of the Directive’s policy cycle: the implementation phase (transposition and application) and the enforcement;
- To evaluate the extent of a potential compliance deficit along the better regulation guidelines evaluation criteria;
- To analyse the enforcement measures taken by each EU MS;
- To evaluate the implementation of the IPM principles, in particular by examining the preconditions for the proper IPM implementation; and
