Guatemala amends registration law

Guatemala has amended its regulations on the registration of generic pesticides. The measures move towards the UN FAO equivalency system for generic approvals, according to CropLife Latin America. Accord 243/07 came into force last month to modify the previous legislation, Accord 745/99. CropLife says that the new Accord "protects international standards on pesticide registrations and acts as a guarantee to farmers and consumers". A national generic industry association, the Agrequimica, denies that the Accord enforces any equivalency system. "[No] equivalency law ... exist[s] ... in Guatemala, therefore the Accord cannot enforce it," it told Agrow.
