||A study was carried out to evaluate the pesticide regulatory system in Cameroon. Current procedures for the registration, importation and distribution of pesticides are described. The study shows that Cameroon has insufficient legislation in this area. Registration does not exist, and attestations of importation are issued by the Ministry of Agriculture following efficiency tests on the product. Importation and distribution are carried out in less than ideal conditions. There is a need for training and information of all those involved in work with pesticides and for appropriate legislation.
