Brazil 2008 ai reassessment schedule
Brazil has scheduled its 2008 re-evaluation of pesticide active ingredients. The Ministry of Health's national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, is to lead the evaluation of 14 ais this year, including four that had been delayed from last autumn. They were: the acaricide, cyhexatin; the avermectin insecticide, abamectin; the organochlorine insecticide, endosulfan; and the organophosphate insecticide/acaricide, phosmet (Agrow No 535, p 17). Only an internal survey of the reassessments had been made, following a preliminary schedule that was set for the 14 ais last year (Agrow No 534, p 17).
