• Grandfather rights ending soon!

    On the 26 November 2015, it will become a legal requirement for everyone applying plant protection products (PPP) authorised for professional use to have a certificate of competence. It will be an offence to purchase PPPs authorised for professional use if the intended end user does not have a certificate.

    The exemption for 'grandfather rights' will no longer apply. Are you ready? 



    End of grandfather rights
