Brazil amends pesticide labelling
Formulated pesticide products marketed in Brazil will have to carry the "brand name of the technical product". The latter is a synthesised substance taken from raw materials, including the active ingredient with impurities. The move was agreed among competent authorities and industry at the July meeting of the pesticide assessment technical committee, the CTIA. It includes the competent authorities, the national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, the environmental agency, the Ibama, and the Ministry of Agriculture.
