This article covers the regulation for pesticides’ registration to be used in households. An article about the pesticides’ registration to be used in the agricultural field will follow shortly.
Before a pesticide can be commercialized in Chile, it has to undergo a lab analysis first. For this purpose, a foreigner can either create a new company or appoint someone here in Chile that will ask for the registration under his own name and afterward transfers the registration to your company, when it establishes a brand here in Chile.
The documentation that has to be provided is as follows:
The lab testing will cost depending on the active ingredients up to U$2,000.- Once the records have been checked and the report of the Public Health Institute has been received, the technical report will be processed and result into the corresponding authorization, by means of a decision of the Director of the respective Health Service. This will be a valid decision in the whole country, so the Service that elaborates it will have to send a copy of it to the rest of the Health Services of the country and the central ministerial level.
The duration of the whole procedure lasts about 1 year.
