Registration reminder: Official Controls Regulations for Pesticides
This is a reminder that businesses and other organisations working with plant protection products (PPPs) in Great Britain are required to register basic information about their activity with Defra under The Official Controls (Plant Protection Products) Regulations 2020.
Details of who needs to register can be found below:
Any business or other organisation that started working with PPPs professionally more than 3 months ago should have registered already and must do so as soon as possible.
New professional users and businesses should register within 3 months of starting business.
If you have already registered, you do not need to take any further action.
Defra is collecting information from businesses in Scotland and Wales on behalf of Scottish and Welsh Governments. Businesses in Northern Ireland should not register with Defra as Northern Ireland has created its own regulations.
A useful FAQs document is shared below.
