Machinery for Pesticides Application regulation

The Machinery for Pesticide Application Regulations amends the Machinery Regulations and introduces additional essential environmental protection requirements that must be fulfilled by new machinery for pesticide application before it is placed on the market and put into service.

 

The essential environmental protection requirements for the design and construction of new machinery for pesticide application are included in the Machinery Regulations in order to ensure consistency with Directive 2009/128/EC which establishes a framework for Community action to achieve the sustainable use of pesticides.

Machinery for pesticide application means machinery specifically intended for the application of plant protection products within the meaning of Article 2(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market.

Machinery for pesticide application includes self-propelled, towed, vehicle-mounted, semi-mounted and airborne machinery, as well as stationary machinery intended for pesticide application, both for professional and non-professional use. It also includes powered or manually-operated portable and handheld machinery with a pressure chamber.

The aim of the Machinery for Pesticide Application Regulations is to lay down requirements on the design and construction of machinery for pesticides application in order to reduce the adverse effects of pesticides on human health and the environment.

This change effects manufacturers, authorised representatives, importers and distributors. For full text kindly contact Abigail Mamo @ GRTU.
