Brazil to fine agchem MRL violations

The Brazilian national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, intends to fine pesticide residue transgressions from this year. It has presented new measures for its pesticide residue in food monitoring programme to a government commission. Agency general manager Claudio Luiz Meirelles says that from this year “we will initiate the collection of charges, whereas until this year we had worked from an education perspective”. The new system would include penalties of up to R$1.5 million (US$748,000) for farmers or retailers handling food with above permitted levels of pesticide residues.
