Danny Hayward from JSD Rail gave an outline of vegetation control on the railways and the operation of the spray trains. Mark De’ath from Headland detailed the challenges faced by chemical manufacturers and Hazel Doonan spoke about the working relationship between BASIS and AIC (Agricultural Industries Confederation).
The Assessment team were given an informative talk followed by a question and answer session by Paul Adamson, Tracey Ware and Martin Ball from HSE CRD who clarified many areas around the PPP (Plant Protection Products) Regulations and the issued guidance.
