Establece condiciones y requisitos para la autorización de semioquímicos para el control de plagas (Conditions and requirements for the authorization of semiochemicals for pest control) (34 pages, in Spanish)
The notified measure concerns a specific draft regulation establishing the conditions and requirements for the assessment and authorization of semiochemicals according to their particular characteristics and nature. Semiochemicals are chemical compounds or mixtures of chemical compounds released by plants, animals and other organisms, which trigger a response in the behaviour or physiology of organisms of the same or another species, and include allelochemicals and pheromones. This measure will contribute to the availability of quality inputs, by strengthening and expanding the spectrum for phytosanitary control, while contributing to the sustainable and competitive development of Chile's agriculture.
