CRICKET CLUBS USING PESTICIDES NEED TO REGISTER WITH THE UK GOVERNMENT BY 22 JUNE 2022
18th May 2022
After 22 June 2022, sports grounds and playing fields that have professional plant protection products (pesticides, plant growth regulators, etc.) applied to them (whether by the club or by a contractor) must be registered by law with the Department for the Environment, Farming and Rural Affairs.
Cricket clubs using pesticides should register their ground(s) or they will risk enforcement action from the Health and Safety Executive. Please ensure you share this information with your club networks and direct them to the DEFRA website for details on who needs to register and how to register.
