Every professional user and seller of plant protection products must have a permit, also known as a Phyto licence. The Phyto licence is valid for a period of five years and can only be renewed if the holder undergoes sufficient training courses to keep their knowledge of the sustainable use of plant protection products up to date.

Private individuals can also use Plant Protection Products and do not need a phytolicence. This is because the products allowed for private use are adapted, for example by including a lower dose or a less harmful active substance.

What do we do?

We are responsible for granting these permits.
