7th European Workshop on

Standardized Procedure for the Inspection of Sprayers in Europe

The SPISE 7-Workshop offers the possibility of getting to know the provisions on inspection of plant protection equipment stated by Article 8 of EU Directive 2009/128/EC, which are binding for all Member States, to interpret these correctly and to discuss each one of them. In addition, the Workshop gives the participants the chance to initiate further specifications which the Member States must develop and harmonise by themselves (subsidiarity) and to put them into operation.

  • Participation of experts on inspection of sprayers in use from all the Member States, representatives from official bodies, either national or European, customers or farmers, allow the attendants to have a complete overview about the situation and perspectives of the mandatory procedure for inspection of sprayers in use in Europe.

Aspects as inspector’s training, the necessity of new standards, SPISE advice on how to inspect sprayers not included in ISO 16122 series sprayers, quality control of inspection workshops and other relevant aspects will be discussed.
