Brazil to require ag prescription-issued agchem sales

Brazil is on course to enforce the issuing of “agronomic prescriptions” from authorised professionals for use in the purchase of agrochemicals. The national Parliament’s environment and sustainable development commission (CMADS) has approved draft legislation to amend pesticide Law 7802/89, regulating sales to include the publication of at least five copies of such prescriptions. Each of the copies would have a separate addressee: the actual purchaser; the retail outlet selling the product; the Ministry of Agriculture; the national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa; and the competent (regional) state authority. CMADS president Saraiva Felipe MP says a study from its sub-committee found that many Brazilian states do not enforce such regulations. The legislation moves to agriculture commission, before a full parliamentary vote.
