INSPECTION OF PESTICIDE APPLICATION EQUIPMENT
The Directive 2009/128 / EC of the European Parliament establishes a framework for the implementation of National Action Plan referring to the sustainable use of pesticides in every country in EU. One of the areas covered by the Directive relates directly to the introduction of mandatory monitoring and inspection of pesticide application machines using standard EN13790 and new one EN 16122. In the Republic of Macedonia at the end of 2014 began a process of harmonization of the old law for plants protection with new rules and regulations required by the European Commission. The new rules and regulations, inter alia, pay special attention to the pesticides application equipment and to their mandatory inspection at specific time intervals, protection of agricultural land from pollution and to the principles of environmental protection.
