Brazil MPs snub draft agchem bill

The Brazilian parliamentary select committee, the agriculture and rural development commission, rejected draft legislation obliging the publication of a technical report on a pesticide before the authorities approve it. Draft bill 7490/10 was proposed by Beto Faro MP in the lower House of Deputies last year. It sought the publication of a technical report demonstrating that a pesticide would not cause harm to humans or the environment. The draft bill would have stipulated a 30-day period for government to cancel a registration of a pesticide “considered inadequate by international health and environment organisations. He claimed that current legislation does not provide for that. The committee rejected the proposal on August 22nd.
