Brazil amends agchem import licensing rules

Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture has amended rules on the import of pesticides into the country and licence applications. Requests for import licences are to be submitted to one of the country’s 27 state agriculture superintendents. The Ministry would then have 30 days to respond. Prior to the application, the company will need to be registered with the respective state authority, and the pesticide it seeks to import will require Ministry registration.  Current protocol data checks and import licensing are carried out manually through up to three support systems, the Siscomex, Agrofit and Sigvig.  The government aims to integrate the work.  Some 22,000 licences were granted last year. The amendments were issued in the official gazette this month.
