Mexico amends agchem approval system

Mexico has amended rules governing the registration, import, and export of pesticides. It issued a decree last month. The changes bring the system towards the UN FAO equivalence regime for registering generic pesticides, and closely match the Brazilian generic pesticide registration system, according to that country’s generic agrochemical association, the Aenda. The national toxicology authority, the Cofepris, will be responsible for the authorisation for sale and export, granting import licences, and carrying out risk evaluations in order to set maximum residue limits. The Ministry of the Environment will issue technical opinions on environmental safety as well as assessing authorisation for imports and exports, while the Ministry of Agriculture will determine which pesticides may be used in emergency cases.
