China issues more 2012 production OKs

China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has issued a draft of its fourth batch of pesticide production approval certificates for 2012. The list contains only 23 approvals, a sharp reduction on the March list, which contained 213 such authorisations ( Agrow No 636, p 18). While most of the approvals are for pesticide processing or mixing of agrochemical compounds, three Chinese companies were also granted new production approvals for the manufacture of active ingredients. They were: Changzhou Wintafone Chemical, for the herbicide, MCPA (95% purity), and the insecticide, hydramethylnon (95%); Jiangsu Jiannong Agrochemical, for the insecticide, novaluron (98.5%); and Nanjing Huazhou Pharmaceutical for the herbicide, diquat (40% mother liquid). Ten out of the 23 approvals were granted to companies based in the northern province of Shandong, more than for any other region. The approvals are valid for two years.
