Agrochemicals Registration
Registration of Agrochemicals including insecticides, fungicides, herbicide &  plant growth promoters are regulated though the Insecticides Act, 1971 requiring compulsory registration of the pesticides at the central (federal) level and licence for their manufacture, formulation and sale at the state level. The Central Insecticides Board & Registration Committee (Established Under Section 4 & 5, respectively of the Insecticides Act, 1968), enforce the Act and rules.

REACH Requirements
REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals. Enforced in European Union from early 2007, REACH has been utilized as a framework for protection of human health and the environment from the attendant risks that can be posed by chemicals. ECHA is the facilitation agency among the regulatory authorities for ensuring compliance and advancing safe use of chemicals by providing a central database of information to public and Member State Competent Authorities and Enforcement Authorities of each EU state.

Depending on the import / export of chemical substances into EU region, companies are responsible for submitting key information about the substances that they manufacture, import or use. This includes information of the hazardous properties, classification and labeling on a global harmonized system. Most importantly and of current relevance are the toxicology data and the classification and labeling information.

It is important to note that not all companies are responsible for generation of toxicology data, only the lead registrant. Furthermore, sharing of data is mandatory among the companies in the substance information exchange forum.
