About Lawn Assured Scheme
The Lawn Assured standard was launched after the sector was seen to need a standard similar to that of the established Amenity Assured Standard, where a voluntary approach was required to demonstrate to both the public and regulatory authorities that the industry is taking the responsible use of pesticides seriously via independent verification.
BASIS is not an enforcement body, we aim to help companies meet legal, regulatory and best practice standards. Our auditing team are very experienced and highly trained individuals who will advise and assist but the fact that an independent audit has taken place will help to reassure the regulatory bodies and the general public that pesticides are used responsibly and the public and environment protected. This meets with the National Action Plan and the requirements of the Sustainable Use Directive with regard to non-agricultural use of professional pesticides.
