THE LAW REQUIRES all those who use or apply Pesticides in Agriculture, Horticulture, Forestry, Industrial, Amenity or On or Near Water workplaces to possess a valid Pesticide certificate in order to comply with regulations.
Legislation applies to ANYONE spraying in the above workplaces, including VOLUNTEERS, EMPLOYED or SELF-EMPLOYED, regardless of the size of the company or frequency of spraying operations, even if spraying your own land.
As of November 2015: non-certificated ‘Grandfather Rights’ spraying is no longer permitted.
Compliance with legislation is regulated by the Chemical Regulation Directorate (CRD), the pesticides arm of the Health & Safety Executive (HSE). They alone determine certification needs and status. Full details are available on the HSE website.
