−− AgroCare is the Global Association representing the manufacturers of post-patent crop protection industry, appointment effective from January 2020.
Jan. 17, 2020
AgroCare is the Global Association, established on April 28, 2008 with its Headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, representing the manufacturers of post-patent pesticides. Its members, the four regional associations for South America, Europe, India and China represent more than 850 individual manufacturers. As a global organisation, AgroCare defends the interests of generic manufacturers at global platforms such as the Joint Meeting on Pesticides Specifications (JMPS), the Joint Meeting on Pesticides Management (JMPM) and CIPAC (the Collaborative International Pesticides Analytical Council).
In the past years, AgroCare has been actively involved in the debate on amendments to the "Manual on development and use of FAO and WHO specifications for pesticides", which is causing costly delays for generic manufacturers to participate in international tenders for agrochemical and public hygiene products.
In close cooperation with its regional member associations and their industry members, AgroCare is the international advocate for achieving feasible rules for establishing equivalence of active substances and products, at the same time maintaining high quality standards, and lowering barriers for the introduction of generic competition, to offer farmers around the world the benefits of free competition after patents have expired. AgroCare amplifies the voice of generic manufacturers who run into anticompetitive regulations and barriers, and speaks on their behalf.
At the same time, AgroCare communicates to its members the developments at global level, enabling them to adjust their business strategies and prepare for changes in the global regulatory environment.
