An Agricultural Chemicals Distribution Control (ACDC) License is required by many herbicide users in Qld eg contractors and most non-rural herbicide users. It is a requirement for most who apply herbicides using a powered equipment. This ensures that you know the ins and outs of the process and are skilled in following the strict requirements associated with it.
Many commercial users of farm chemicals are not farmers, but it doesn't mean they don't need to have a license. Most herbicide users in Qld should have an ACDC license especially if you use chemicals in the following positions:
The same legal requirements apply to all commercial users of herbicides. Talk to us to learn more about these requirements.
Domestic users of chemicals.
Domestic users of chemicals, including farm chemicals, are exposed to the same types of risks, often with little understanding of the consequences of accidents or misuse. Thus, it is equally important for you to know the do's and don'ts when handling chemicals. However, it is not a legal requirement for domestic users of chemicals to have Accreditation or an ACDC Licence.
Courses are delivered to the specific industry experience and needs of the group participants. It is best to have some experience with the use of chemicals prior to attending the course.
