International News: Brazilian court suspends 63 pesticides released by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA)

On 13 September 2019, MAPA under Act No 62 registered 63 pesticides for use. This ruling has now been suspended by a federal court judge who ruled the products should not be authorised in Brazil because their “high toxicity rate is incompatible with the principles of governing economic activity, as they override the protection of the environment and are contrary to the basic principle of economic order, according to which economic activity is based on defending the environment and safeguarding the right to health and food.”
