Brazil industry seeks common SPS plan

Brazilian agrochemical industry representatives are working out their common strategy to participate at the WTO’s Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS) Committee. A working group from Brazilian industry associations met last month, and will take part in further discussions this month on data protection issues, the fine chemicals industry association, the Abifina, says. In mid-February, they are to submit documentation on: the new agrochemical registration system in the EU “on the banning of pesticides”; South American customs union Mercosul equivalence-based generic pesticide registrations; an EU-Mercosul agreement on certificate of origin rules; illegal products; maximum residue limits; and the UN FAO Codex Alimentarius system. A Brazilian industry task force will deliver final proposals in March to the second meeting of the SPS’s Agrochemicals Task Force in Brussels, Belgium.
