There are certain situations where you will need to have a qualification called a ‘certificate
of competence’. In general, you will need a certificate of competence if you supply, store or use
‘agricultural pesticides’. These are pesticides used:
• in agriculture;
• in horticulture (including horticulture of amenity areas such as parks, streets, sports pitches
and so on);
• in forestry;
• in or near water; and
• as industrial herbicides.
The circumstances in which you need a certificate of competence are explained and set out in
flow diagrams later in this section.
