China to Issue Newly Revised Edition of Pesticide Administrative Regulations

CCM introduced the latest issue of Herbicides China News on November 15, 2011. The top news is that China will formally release newly revised edition of Pesticide Administrative Regulations in 2012.

On the basis of the original edition promulgated in May 1997, the new regulations, which are under revision by the Chinese government nowadays and will be promulgated in 2012, are expected to manage domestic pesticide industry effectively. The following aspects might be mentioned in the draft of the new regulations:
1.       The entry barrier of pesticide industry in China will be heightened.
The temporary one-year-registration period of pesticide in China will be cancelled. The active period of pesticides registration will be expanded to five years, which will result in shrinking registration volume of pesticide in China.

2. It is urgent to improve the quality of pesticide production in China.
Pesticide manufacturers in China should establish relative rules or records in relative procedures such as material purchase, package and processing to guarantee the quality of products.

3. Sales permission of pesticide products in China will be re-executed.
Pesticide sellers must have relative qualifications, such as professional technology, reasonable sales rules, strict supervision, and so on.

4. Pesticide application in China will be standardized.
Relative trainings and guidance of pesticide application for peasants should be enhanced. Especially, the punishment on illegal applications of acute toxic pesticide will be achieved in the future.

5. Governmental supervision of pesticide industry in China should be reinforced.
