Brazil Anvisa defends lack of agchem approvals

The Brazilian national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, has hit back at complaints of a lack of pesticide product approvals. “Whenever we have these debates, some in the sector argue that delays in new registrations are a major obstacle for the development of the sector, while we have data showing that half of registered pesticides are not commercialised,” agency director Agenor Álvares told a public hearing at the national Senate. He cited a recently published survey in which the agency participated ( Agrow No 638, p 20). The Senate’s agriculture committee hosted a hearing covering regulation of pesticides in Brazil earlier this month, which was followed by a further hearing focusing on the negative impact of pesticides at the lower house, the House of Deputies. They were part of a parliamentary week on regulatory health matters.
