Brazil MPs reject agchem legislation

The Brazilian Senate’s agriculture committee has rejected a proposed pesticide production and use control system. It voted against draft legislation 1950/11 submitted by the Workers Party MP, Amauri Teixeira, which proposes to create a control system via electronic inspections. Committee chairperson Marcos Montes outlined the reasoning behind the decision. He said that the proposal would create “additional bureaucracy that would be unnecessary and prejudicial to Brazilian agriculture”. Present legislation already determines that pesticides be evaluated by three regulatory bodies before commercial registration can be granted. “New control mechanisms would not bring benefits; on the contrary, they would bring extra costs and difficulties,” he noted. The chairperson also noted the lack of sufficient personnel to oversee such a system. Three committee members took the opposing view, voting for the draft bill.
