China OKs more pesticide manufacturers
The Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has published six new manufacturing approvals for newly-registered Chinese agrochemical companies. The authorisations were granted at the end of last year. The Ministry published eight manufacturing approvals for new Chinese companies earlier in the year ( Agrow No 601,p 32). Three of the latest approvals, each valid for five years, are for agrochemical active ingredients, while two are for household pesticides and one for a pesticide formulation.
