Brazil sets minor-crop agchem approval guidelines

Brazil has set new guidelines for the registration of pesticides for use on minor crops. The major change that normative instruction INC 1 makes to the existing 2010 regulation, which it revokes, is that alterations to its annex I and grouping of crops can be judged and evaluated by the Ministry’s pesticide office, the CTA. “The reissue of the regulation in order to alter annex I will no longer be necessary,” CTA co-ordinator general Julio Britto explains. The new regulation has changed the grouping of crops to suit the extrapolation of maximum residue limits towards agronomic, botanical and dietary characteristics of each crop. INC 1 is an initiative of three pesticide competent authorities, the Ministry of Agriculture, the environmental agency, and the national health surveillance agency.
