Argentina updates agchem registration demands
Argentina has updated rules for pesticide active ingredient and product registrants. The national animal and plant health inspection service, the Senasa, issued a resolution in November, detailing rules that had not been anticipated in earlier legislation. Data requirements on the origin of ais and formulated products are growing, the Senasa says. For example, the need for those applying to register products formulated in more than one plant was not foreseen. Resolution 822/2011 sets the requirements and procedures that registrants must follow when recording additional information on: the origin of an ai, a new formulation plant for an already registered product, or a new formulated product with various places of origin of a determined ai. All such inclusions are for products and ais of the same composition and purity as the original and must specify new plant address, town and country, the Senasa notes.
