The operation of our service during the corona crisis


Due to the measures of the corona crisis, we, like most other Belgians, work from home. This means that we only work electronically and that needs some adaptation.


For the treatment of applications for phytolicenses little changes. Of course, we only process applications electronically. You can easily request a copy of your phytolicense and your account can be consulted online.

Plant protection products

There are a number of changes to be taken into account by applicants for plant protection product authorisations:

  • Authorisations are now fully electronic. Deeds of authorisation are sent by our secretariat by e-mail to the authorisation holders concerned.
  • We are currently unable to receive applications by post. A procedure for submitting applications electronically will be published on our website.


The processing of applications is already done electronically. The only change is that no paper certificates are sent.


We will answer your questions by email, as usual. Contact by phone is of course also possible, but we apologize if this does not always go smoothly technically.
We also ask for your understanding for any delays.

We wish everyone good health and we hope to get back to normal as soon as possible. How you can protect yourself and others can be found on
