NSTS TESTING

Since 2016, the National Sprayer Testing Scheme (NSTS) has become a mandatory requirement for all boom sprayers under the Sustainable Use Directive (SUD), with re-testing every 5 years until 2020, when the requirements for re-testing reduces to every three years. The SUD is mandatory throughout the EU.

NSTS tested sprayers are also a requirement of many UK farm assurance schemes and supermarket protocols. All pesticide application equipment now needs to hold a valid test certificate from the NSTS. This includes trailed, mounted and self-propelled sprayers as well as foggers, misters, granular and slug pellet applicators.
