Syngenta India's emamectin under irregularity review

The Indian Central Insecticides Board’s Registration Committee has issued a notice to Syngenta India for irregularities related to the import of the insecticide, emamectin benzoate. The issue refers to the import of a 5% soluble granule formulation in 2007, when the company did not have the requisite approval to do so. The import was done on the basis of a certificate of registration that was meant for domestic manufacture and was also expired at that time. Different batches repacked at the company’s facility at Goa were given different dates of manufacture and expiry “by giving manufacturing dates as the dates on which imported material was repacked in the country”. Syngenta has been asked to submit a reply within 15 days stating why its approval for the ai may not be withdrawn and cancelled, and “other necessary actions, as deemed fit, be initiated under the provisions of Insecticides Act 1968 and Insecticides Rules 1971”.
