Disparate systems impact Brazil agchem controls
The different registration and inspection of agrochemical use procedures among Brazilian states are among the main barriers to effective controls in Brazil, newspaper Gazeta do Povo reports. That is among the key findings of national pesticide inspectors at the 10th Enfisa event (national pesticide inspection and seminar) held in Curitiba, Brazil last month. Each of the 27 states in the country carries out sale and use inspections in a different manner. Authorities co-signed a “letter from Curitiba”, which has set various deadlines for co-ordinated actions, including creating a working group to set national questionnaires seeking procedures for national inspections over the next 120 days, and setting a national policy by next year.
