Registration Update

                                    Update on product registration


Eden  Research plc, a leading UK agrochemical development company, is pleased to announce the  receipt
of the Draft Assessment Report for its lead product 3-AEY from Pesticide Safety Directorate (PSD), the
UK  regulatory  authority. This represents a significant milestone towards the EU approval  of  Eden's
lead product 3-AEY.

The  Draft Assessment Report is the evaluation document for an active substance, for Annex I  listing,
prepared  by the Member State (in this case the UK authority, PSD, taking lead responsibility).  Other
member states will, in due course, review the DAR as part of the EU wide Annex I approval system. This
milestone is in line with the Company's expectations in respect of conclusions and timing.

Tim Griffiths, the Chief Executive of Eden Research plc, said:-

"This  is  clearly  a  significant step towards commercialisation of  our  product  pipeline  and,  in
particular, our first product, 3-AEY. This sends an important message to the market that, not only  is
our  technology commercially accepted, as proven by the agreements that we already have in place, but,
its safety is now also acceptable to the regulatory authorities."

Information relating to the regulatory process can be found on the PSD website (www.pesticides.gov.uk)
or on Eden's website within the 'Product Areas' section (www.edenresearch.com/html/products/RS.asp).
