Procedure descriptions

Display fumigation activities with biocidal products or plant protection products

If you wish to carry out fumigation activities with biocidal products or plant protection products, you must notify the competent authority.

Anyone wishing to carry out fumigation with fumigants on a commercial basis or independently as part of other economic activities outside a fixed facility may also require a permit from the competent authority. The employer must also notify the competent authority in advance of each fumigation activity. In addition, a collective notification may be approved if fumigation is repeated regularly and the conditions described in the notification remain unchanged.
