Brazil Anvisa bans two ais

The Brazilian national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, has this month approved proposals to ban the insecticides/acaricides, parathion-methyl and phorate. The agency proposed bans on the two active ingredients in 2012, and has assessed public comments since received. Both ais are among 14 that the Anvisa has been reassessing for their health impact on consumers and rural workers since 2008. It has banned four and placed restrictions on another two. The latest bans have been issued in the 240th edition of the official gazette. The Anvisa is to conclude the reassessment programme, which includes the herbicide, glyphosate, in the next two years. The programme is just over half-way through, with no conclusions yet reached on: the herbicides, glyphosate, paraquat and lactofen; the fungicide, thiram; and the insecticides, abamectin and carbofuran.
