About BASIS Stores Inspection Scheme
The BASIS Stores Inspection Scheme is an independently assessed annual inspection looking at legislation and best practice standards in professional pesticide stores. The scheme looks at standards set out in the Defra Code of Practice for Suppliers of Pesticides to Agriculture, Horticulture and Forestry and other relevant Codes of Practice.
The Scheme is available to all types and sizes of stores from large distributors, smaller town and country type outlets to specific product storage (Small stores scheme).
The BACCS stores inspection scheme is available for Amenity Contractors who have a pesticide store and is tailored to ensure industry standards and regulations are met.
Further tailored schemes are available for specific industries, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
BASIS has a Logistics Committee who monitor the stores schemes and representatives from the Environment Agency, Chief Fire Officers Association, Health & Safety Executive (CRD), AIC, distributors and other interested parties work alongside BASIS to ensure the inspection schemes are robust and fit for purpose.
The BASIS Auditor will visit your premises and we will work with you to ensure you are meeting the required standards. A successful audit leads to annual certification which is seen as a way of demonstrating to HSE /CRD that reasonable precautions have been taken to ensure compliance with the regulations and best practice standards.
