Brazil Senate bodies OK agchem sales rules
The agriculture commission of Brazil's upper house of Parliament, the Senate, has approved draft legislation seeking to accelerate the commercialization of registered pesticide products. That follows approval by the House's social affairs commission three weeks ago, the national confederation of agriculture (CNA) says. Senator and CNA President Katia Abreu of the center right Democrat party delivered Draft Law 88 earlier this year. The regulation would oblige registrants to sell pesticide products within two years of commercial approval or have the registration revoked.
