Record Keeping

Most states/ territories make it compulsory for all people who use pesticides for commercial or occupational purposes to make a record of their pesticide use. This includes farmers, market gardeners, parkland and greenkeepers, nursery operators, pest control operators, ground rig operators, landlords, landscape gardeners, local councils and government agencies, and other people who use pesticides as part of their job.
Keeping records of pesticide applications can help reduce health, trade and environmental impacts by providing vital information if problems occur. Keeping records helps to track the effectiveness of the pesticides used and, in the event of an incident occurring, assists in demonstrating that pesticides were used responsibly.
The following links are for respective states/ territories, and will assist you in completing the record keeping assessment.
