The law has changed, as of the 26th November 2015, it became an offence for anyone to use PPPs (Plant Protection Products) authorised for professional use unless they have a Certificate of Competence.
Under the new requirements a Certificate of Competence is required for anyone who is going to apply a professional product. This includes both knapsack and boom sprayer application methods. The City and Guilds Level 2 Safe Use of Pesticides Replacing Grandfather Rights will give you the qualification to continue to use professional products on your own land, land you rent or that of an employer.
