Anvisa Sees Sectoral Agreements as New Form of Regulation

Posted 16 October 2013 | By Louise Zornoza

Brazil's National Agency for Sanitary Surveillance (Anvisa) says it sees a new Sectoral Agreement on the disposal of drugs as an innovation in regulation and believes its success will be an important indicator of the viability of the use of such agreements as a regulatory tool.

The Agreement, part of Brazil's National Solid Waste Program (PNRS), was realized through the coordination efforts of Anvisa, which vetted its impact and economic viability with the pharmaceutical industry, local health surveillance and environmental agencies, professional bodies and representatives of civil society. 

The final document was also discussed with the Ministries of Environment, Health, Development, Industry and Foreign Trade, Agriculture and Supply and Finance.  The pharmaceutical industry has 120 days to submit recommendations on the implementation of the Agreement.
