Spraying certificate renewal

If you work with pesticides, you must be in possession of a valid spraying certificate. The certificate is valid for 5 years. Within these 5 years, you must follow the correct amount of repeat meetings so that your certificate does not expire. Each meeting deals with a certain theme. You must follow a meeting on the correct theme. You will find more information in the schedule below about the number of meetings and the mandatory themes per type of certificate.

Pesticide Application License

This license is intended for agricultural entrepreneurs, employees, directors, heads of park services, who in a professional capacity:

  • spray pesticides themselves or allow pesticides to be sprayed by employees, on their own premises;
  • have agricultural pesticides in their possession or store pesticides.

Pesticide Business Operations License

This license is for managers or owners of an agricultural contracting company or landscape contractors who have pesticides in their possession and spray pesticides, or allow them to be sprayed, on behalf of third parties. Pesticide sales advisers must also have a Pesticide Business Operations license.

Pesticide Distribution License

This license is for managers of sales outlets for pesticides.

Business Operations + Distribution License

Per 1 August 2009. Everything about Business Operations and Distribution together.

The Pesticide Application and Pesticide Business Operations licenses form a cumulative whole. This means that to obtain a Pesticide Business Operations license you must first be in possession of the training requirements for the Pesticide Application license. Per 1 August 2009, Pesticide Distribution has been disconnected. This means that the prior training courses Distribution and Business Operations are no longer mandatory.

With the professional competence certificate Pesticide Distribution, issued after 1 August 2009, you are only allowed to work in the field of pesticide transport and storage. Pesticide safety education may no longer be given (if you still wish to do so, you must also have a professional competence certificate “business operations”).

A license is valid for five years and comes into effect on the date of issuance of the reference or certificate. To extend a license, log in with your username and password.

Mole and Water Vole Control License

This license is for anyone using pesticides based on phosphorus-hydrogen in the control of moles and water voles.
