Scientific Digest
Agrochemicals Accepted by the British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) and Brewing Research International (BRi) for use on Barley and Hops

The Purpose of the BBPA’s and BRi’s List
The BRi and BBPA aim to test agrochemicals which, because of their chemical nature or timing of application to barley or hops could potentially affect either the malting, brewing or fermentation processes, or could cause undesirable off-flavours in the finished beer. In the EU, Council Directive 93/71/EEC (Annex III) requires the effects of pesticides on transformation processes to be taken into account and requires an evaluation of the possible occurrence of adverse effects on transformation processes, such as brewing and malting, or on the quality of their products.
In order for a chemical to be included on the list of accepted chemicals, BRi will carry out an initial assessment of factors including; chemical nature; mode of action; time of application; available test data. Following this initial assessment, BRi will conduct any further additional malting or brewing trials necessary to come to a decision. These further trials do not replace or duplicate the toxicological or efficacy testing required by the Pesticides Safety Directorate (PSD) before the chemical can be registered, but are designed to test the suitability of treated crops for processing specifically within the malting and brewing industry.
