Brazil Anvisa to initiate glyphosate reassessment

The Brazilian national health surveillance agency, the Anivsa, board has approved the start of a re-evaluation process for glyphosate herbicide and four other active ingredients. The other ais are the herbicides, lactofen and paraquat, the fungicide, thiram, the insecticide, carbofuran, and the acaricide/insecticide, abamectin. The agency launched a reassessment programme on 14 ais including the above five in 2008. It has since placed restrictions on several and implemented bans on the other pesticides, including on parathion-methyl and phorate insecticides last year. A federal court recently ordered the Anvisa to issue a conclusion on the other ais within three months following severe delays. The agency seeks public comments on the reassessments.
