Brazil Anvisa sets 2014 priorities

The Brazilian national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, has set out its priorities until the end of 2014 in the area of pesticide toxicology. They include the re-evaluations of the remaining seven active ingredients from its programme covering 14 since 2008 (Agrow passim). The remaining ais at the time of the Anvisa's September communication included: the insecticides, abamectin, acephate, and carbofuran; the herbicides, glyphosate, paraquat and lactofen; and the fungicide, thiram. Since then, it has imposed stricter conditions and the exclusion of several crops to be applied to the sale and use of acephate (Agrow No 674, p 17). The agency's other stated priorities are minor crops, the setting of toxicological evaluation criteria, the notification of technical changes in registrations, and traceability in perishable foods.
