NSTS Sprayer Testing Legislation

If your sprayer is tested to comply with a farm assurance scheme then there is no need to read this, as you are complying with the “new” EU directive that says that all sprayers over 5 years old must be tested by 26th November 2016 and there after every 6 years.

So the legal requirement is - if your sprayer is over 5 years old, and has not got a test, it needs testing by 26th November and every 6 years to comply.

The legal requirements are contained in the Plant Protection Products (Sustainable Use) Regulations 2012 http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2012/1657/pdfs/uksi_20121657_en.pdf

We are able to carry out any air-blast sprayer servicing along with NSTS sprayer tests.
