Peru ag sectors dispute agchem regulation adoption

Agrochemical industry association CropLife Peru has called on the government to adopt South American trading bloc the Andean Community's (CAN) Decision 436, citing human health concerns, newswire Notiagro reports. The regulation seeks to harmonise agrochemical registration and use requirements across member states. Peru sought changes to the Decision earlier this year, which are under consideration by the Community agricultural health commission, the Cotasa. It came into force 11 years ago, but CAN member state Peru declined to adopt it, preferring its own "farmer-importer-user (AIU)" system, which allows the direct import of generic pesticides by farmer groups.
