Monitoring

The Danish Environmental Protection Agency and the Danish Plant Directorate verify whether operators have valid spraying certificates and permits. The Danish Plant Directorate monitors operators of spraying equipment on farms, while the Danish Environmental Protection Agency monitors other operators, e.g. on golf courses, in municipalities, forestry management, etc.

During inspection visits

The owner or the employees who have performed the spraying must be able to produce valid spraying certificates/permits during inspection visits.  If spraying is performed by someone other than the owner, the name of the person/company must be provided to allow the inspector to obtain information as to whether the operator is in possession of a valid certificate/permit.
It is a good idea to state the name of the operator for each pesticide application specified in the spraying records.
