The Removal of ‘Grandfather Rights’ for Pesticide Users
♦ Were you born before 31st December 1964?
♦ Do you currently apply pesticides (e.g. weed killers or slug pellets) on
land that you either own or rent?
♦ Do you purchase those pesticides from an agro-chemical supplier?
♦ Do you not hold a City & Guilds NPTC pesticide qualification
such as PA1, PA2 or PA6?
If you can answer “yes” to these four questions, whilst you are currently probably
operating within the law, as from 26th November 2015 and under European
legislation, you will no longer be able to do so, and will need to hold a certificate
(PA1 & PA2) or the new Level 2 Award in the Safe Use of Pesticides (replacing
Grandfathers Rights).
We are running Grandfathers Rights Refresher Sessions on 19th & 20th November, for more information or to book a
place please call Sally on 01386 832728.
