MCAST's Institute of
Agribusiness is organising a short evening course for importers, distributors
and retailers of pesticides.
As you may know, the
Pesticides Control Act regulating the trade of pesticides states that all those
who handle these products need to have a license issued by the Malta
Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority (MCCAA). This is granted after the
interested persons follow a special course approved by the Authority itself.
The Institute of Agribusiness
is therefore holding such a course, consisting of 12 2-hour sessions spread
over 2 or 3 weeks and starting in early January. This course is approved by the
MCCAA and, after completion, participants will sit for a written test and
eventually be issued with their license. The fee for this course is €185.
Members who are engaged
in the importation, distribution and retailing of pesticides for agricultural,
industrial or domestic wishing to attend the course are invited to contact the
MCAST – Office of Part-Time Courses on 23987116 or 23987103 and by email on .
