Dear colleague,

following Article 8 of the DIRECTIVE 2009/128/EC the Member States shall ensure that Pesticide Application Equipment in professional use by 26 November 2016 had been inspected at least once. This obligation couldn’t be followed completely in many cases.  For that reason a further SPISE workshop was organized to discuss the further needed tasks and the occurring problems together with delegates coming from other Member States and other interested states in Europe and from the European Commission. In this connection we would like to inform you that the Program for the SPISE 7 Workshop is ready, please take a look to the attached file.

We send this announcement to you:

– to make you aware that this workshop on 26 – 28 September 2018 is getting closer and

– to invite you to come to Athens (Greece) and participate on the SPISE 7 Workshop.

The registration is still possible.

If you should be interested then you should register soon as the hotels and the flights to Athens become more expensive as the time passes.

We would be grateful if you could pass on this invitation to other interested colleagues in your country. Those of you who registered allready, please consider this letter as update.

We are looking forward to welcoming you on 26 – 28 September 2018 at Athens at the workshop! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.

The SPISE working group
