The Biological Products Industry Alliance is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote sustainability through biological solutions, encouraging greater use of biological inoculants technology. Symborg is one of more than 100 members in the Alliance, which includes companies that manufacture biological pesticides and industries associated with the sector. The main goal is to promote responsible development of biological products that are safe and effective when used in agriculture, horticulture, public health, etc.

Moreover, BPIA encourages knowledge of the biological sector through educational, dissemination and promotional activities. Within BPIA, Symborg is actively involved in the development of an efficacy test protocol for biostimulants, as well as in the definition thereof, biostimulant categories, etc.

By participating in events such as these, Symborg seeks to contribute, along with this association, to raise awareness of the effectiveness and importance of natural microorganisms, of the use of metabolites of agricultural interest and their increasingly important role in sustainable agriculture of the future.

The company is also part of IBMA (International Biocontrol Manufacturers Association), CAPCA (California Association of Pest Control Advisers) and participates in CEN / TC 455, a working group to develop European standards for products based on microorganisms once the European Regulation is approved. Symborg actively participates in promoting the use of biological control methods in sustainable agriculture. Along with these entities, the company shares the goal of driving knowledge of bio-pesticides as effective products and to make improvements to the regulatory process governing them all over the world.
