Application for examination of expertise for plant protection product applicators and/or dispensers

Service Description

The plant protection certificate is required for

  • the application of plant protection products (except for appropriately labeled products for non-professional users in home gardens),
  • for advice on plant protection, and
  • for trade/dispensing (also online and mail-order trade).

The certificate of expertise (card) is also a prerequisite for the purchase of plant protection products from the professional sector.

Persons who are not considered knowledgeable can obtain the plant protection expertise by attending a course with a final examination and apply for the verification card with the examination certificate.

In order to obtain a certificate of expertise, appropriate professional knowledge and skills must be demonstrated for the application. On the one hand, this can be done by means of certain professional qualifications such as training as a farmer or gardener. If a relevant vocational training is missing, the plant protection expert examination is an alternative. This can be taken for the task area "dispensing of plant protection products" (trader) or "application of plant protection products/consulting on plant protection" (user, consultant).

The examination for obtaining the plant protection expertise is conducted by the TLLLR together with the examination board on application and after prior registration. The examination is held in accordance with the Plant Protection Expertise Ordinance and the Thuringian Ordinance on the Implementation of the Plant Protection Act, as amended.

You will be informed of the result orally on the day of the examination. You will receive a written decision together with a cost notification afterwards.
