Welcome to SPISE
The SPISE Working Group was established during the first SPISE workshop 2004. There the participants welcomed the thought that a working group should work on further steps for the harmonisation and mutual acceptance of equipment inspections and should prepare a second European SPISE-Workshop. A constant exchange of information should be made possible between the working group and consultations going on between the EC and MS on improving the sustainability of plant protection.
In the frame of their BTSF–programme the Consumers, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency (CHAFEA) offers training courses for EU countries about pesticide application equipment.
Next meeting of the SPISE Technical Working Groups on 11th and 12th December 2017
