Brazil agchem industry lobbies against Anvisa plan

Some 40 Brazilian MPs met with the Brazilian agrochemical industry association, the Andef, last month to discuss the implications of draft pesticide registration regulations from the national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, according to the generic industry group, the Aenda. The presentation of health risks to rural workers evaluation studies would become obligatory under the proposals in regulation IN 20/2011. The industry claims that if implemented as originally drafted, it would repeat the same demands as regulations recently adopted in the EU and would result in the withdrawal of "many" active ingredients over the coming years. The association warns that whereas Europe's "severe" winters check the spread of pests, Brazil's winter does not. The industry remains unconvinced at the Anvisa's stated reasons for the regulation and seeks its withdrawal.
