Regulations on agricultural pesticides, as well as livestock vaccinations and disinfectants may soon be lightened after the Ministerial Committee on Regulation in the Prime Minister’s Office approved a proposal to lessen rules and bureaucracy surrounding the items.

According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office, regulations on the aforementioned materials account for almost NIS 2 billion each year, but that with lightened regulation, approval time and costs they will be reduced significantly.

“Cutting down on the regulatory burden is a national goal,” said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who added that his government is taking steps to “shorten and simplify [bureaucratic] processes” and make things easier for citizens.
