Plant protection product application for others - Display

Service Description

There is a duty of notification for the application of plant protection products for other persons, businesses and companies. This does not apply to occasional, non-regular neighborly assistance or one-time substitution in case of illness.

The place of business and the place(s) of activity may be located in different federal states. Therefore, the notification has to be made separately at the respective local authority before starting the activity. Notifiable activities in Thuringia must be reported to the Thuringian State Office for Agriculture and Rural Areas (TLLLR).

The obligation to notify the use of plant protection products in service concerns e.g. agricultural contractors but also service providers in the field of horticulture (home garden or indoor greening care, janitor service).

The application of plant protection products for others may only be carried out by qualified persons who have the necessary reliability as well as the required technical knowledge and skills and have proven these to the authorities. Changes in the group of persons and those affecting the operating details as well as the termination of the notifiable activity must also be reported immediately.

If all requirements and information are fulfilled, the official registration as a service-providing user of plant protection products within the meaning of Section 10 of the Plant Protection Act in Thuringia takes place.
