Brazil Senate bodies OK agchem sales rules
The Brazilian upper house of Parliament, the Senate’s, agriculture commission has approved draft legislation seeking to accelerate the commercialisation of registered pesticide products. That follows approval by the house’s social affairs commission three weeks ago, the national confederation of agriculture (CNA) says. Senator Katia Abreu of the centre right Democrat party and CNA president delivered Draft Law 88 earlier this year ( Agrow No 614, p 20). The regulation would oblige registrants to sell pesticide products within two years of commercial approval or have the registration revoked.
