About BASIS Professional Register

Demonstrate your competency and up-to-date expertise in the rapidly changing and technically demanding agriculture, horticulture and amenity pesticide sectors.

Since it was established in 1978, BASIS has proved to be a rigorous and highly effective industry self-regulation scheme. Find out more about events, training courses and the benefits of joining the BASIS Professional Register below.

Passing an exam is one thing, but staying up-to-date in subjects which are rapidly changing and technically demanding, is quite another. This is the purpose of the BASIS Professional Register for the agriculture, horticulture and amenity pesticide sectors.

The BASIS Professional Register requires members to:

  1. Hold a recognised qualification;
  2. Agree to a written Code of Professional Ethics;
  3. And, most importantly, to commit to a programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) so that they stay up-to-date with all the latest developments;

To stay on the register members must accrue a specified number of CPD points every year. CPD is the structured maintenance, improvement and broadening of the knowledge and skills required as a professional working in the crop protection, amenity, fertiliser or public health pest control business sectors. It also includes development of the personal qualities required to succeed in these sectors.

Members of the Professional Registers are issued with a new Identity Card annually enabling them to show proof of their competence and allowing others to confirm that their adviser is both qualified and keeping up-to-date.
