This isn't an April Fool.

If you are professionally applying plant protection products in agriculture or amenity, you will need to register by 22 June 2022. This is a new legal requirement, regardless of size of your business. The requirement is governed by the Official Controls (Plant Protection Products) Regulations 2020 (OCR) and failure to register is breaking the law. This legal requirement is being backed up by increased inspections and will be enforced.

This reduction of industry "red tape" is going swimmingly well!

Is a paper form available do you know?
Bizarrely enough I think you've got to have Excel & the ODS file they refer you to is corrupt & I can't open it.

Good question, is there ever anyone at NRoSO to ask? This was flagged up by National Association of Ag Contractors to members, whose operators you would all expect to be NRoSO registered? You'd also have expected it to be covered off by Red Tractor, but nothing surprises me anymore?!?

Wonder how it compares with other industries?

I expect other industries have a lot of this crap too. Difference is that they tend not to be one man bands, working 80hrs a week, dictated by the weather, and with an average age close to getting the state pension.

Their technical department deals with it. I'm going to complain to human resources that I'm over stretched & the business is currently taking the pee out of me.
