Paraguay sets up new agchem regulatory bodies

Paraguay is to form an institutional commission to regulate pesticide use on crops in the country. The plant health and seed quality service, the Senave, has issued Resolution 092 to form the commission with four representatives including the legal and cabinet secretaries, and the Senave’s general technical directorate, the DGT, and the pesticides and agricultural inputs directorate. It was agreed at the end of July and derogates Resolution 1160/11 of last year. The DGT sought the derogation, complaining that last year’s legislation was passed without “its necessary legal and technical recommendations and support”. Meanwhile, the control of empty pesticide containers will be handled by the Senave, if stakeholders approve. The service is mulling regulatory procedures and will submit proposals for 30-45 days of public comment. The infrastructure is in place, as demanded in Law 3742/09 of three years ago, the Senave notes.
