Brazil has withdrawn the organochlorine insecticide/acaricide, endosulfan, from the market. The competent authorities agreed a three-year phase-out four years ago (Agrow No 596, p 15). The national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, issued Resolution 2908 in August, cancelling its registration or monografia of the active ingredient.
