There are several reasons why a agrochemical registration application may be denied by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA), it is important to note that the registration of pesticides is a rigorous process and that MAPA takes into consideration several factors before granting a product registration. The objective is to ensure the safety and efficacy of the pesticides used in agricultural production.

A rejection occurs after a careful analysis of the product and the documentation submitted by the manufacturer, performed by MAPA and other regulatory agencies involved in the pesticide registration process in Brazil.
The registration process aims to ensure that the products are safe and effective for human, animal and environmental health, as well as for agricultural production. The denial of an application for registration of a particular pesticide product means that the manufacturer or applicant has not received authorization to market, distribute or use the pesticide in the country, due to some technical, regulatory, legal or safety reason.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA) is responsible for evaluating and registering pesticides in Brazil before they are sold and used. To this end, several tests are conducted to verify the quality and safety of these products. Some of the tests conducted by MAPA include:
Efficacy tests, residue tests, acute toxicity tests, chronic toxicity tests, mutagenicity tests, ecotoxicity tests.
In addition to these tests, MAPA also evaluates the studies conducted by manufacturers and conducts an analysis of the toxicological and environmental profile of each pesticide. This whole process is carried out to ensure the safety of the food produced in Brazil and to protect the health of the population and the environment.
The excessive and inappropriate use of agrochemicals can bring a number of risks to human health and the environment. Some of the major risks associated with pesticide use and lack of proper enforcement include:
Lack of proper enforcement can result in the presence of pesticide residues at levels above the allowed levels in food, which can pose a health risk to the consumer.
Environmental contamination can result in soil, water and air contamination, affecting the health of animals and plants, and compromising the quality of natural resources.
The excessive and inadequate use of pesticides can result in the development of resistance on the part of pests and diseases, which can lead to an increase in the use of these products, creating a vicious cycle.
Therefore, the proper surveillance of pesticides is essential to ensure the safety of food and the environment, in addition to protecting the health of the population and reducing the risks associated with the use of these products.
