Sindiveg contests Brazil MPF carbendazim ban move

The Brazilian agrochemical industry trade association, the Sindiveg, has contested the move by Brazilian authorities to suspend the fungicide, carbendazim. The public prosecutor's office, the MPF, is seeking the removal of all registrations of carbendazim-based products in the country through the courts (Agrow No 676, p 19). The association argues that products should not be suspended prior to any published conclusions to new evaluations. Any suspension could be among the determinations of such an assessment and one carried out by the competent authorities "as per the law", it says. Furthermore, the Sindiveg believes that all three regulatory authorities (the Ministry of Agriculture, the environmental agency, the Ibama, and the national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa), and not just the Anvisa should participate in any reassessment. The association has presented itself as a third party in the case.
