Uruguay does not have a comprehensive chemical legislation under elaboration. Similar to other countries, Uruguay has specific chemical regulations, i.e., a positive list for food contact materials and regulations focused on mercury.
Nevertheless, GHS standards are present in Uruguay through Decreto 307/2009, making the 4th version mandatory since 2012 for substances, and 2017 for mixtures.
Uruguay’s Ministry of Livestock, Agriculture and Fisheries is proposing a resolution to ban import, registration, and renewal of pesticide products that include the following active ingredients: Carbofuran, Methyl Parathion, Trichlorfon, Dichlorvos, and Cyhexatin. The Draft Resolution contains only two pages information (in Spanish) (View here). The resolution is available for public comment for a period of 60 days from 12 May 2023. The resolution is expected to enter into force 6 months from the date of publication.
