Online Renewal

Certificates have changed....


From 1 January, we no longer issue GROWSAFE Introductory certificates.

Introductory certificates have been replaced by:
  • GROWSAFE Basic - for people operating under supervision
  • GROWSAFE Standard - for people managing or supervising spray operations or taking responsibility for a workplace.
You will need to decide which level you wish to renew at.  We recommend that everyone using agrichemicals have a Basic certificate and at least one person per workplace hold a Standard certificate.  You do not need to pay until you successfully complete, so if you wish, you can try Standard and then change to Basic if you decide that is a more appropriate certificate for you.

GROWSAFE INTRODUCTORY AND APPROVED HANDLER TO GROWSAFE STANDARD AND CERTIFIED HANDLER - online renewal quiz

Under the new regulatory framework for hazardous substances, the Approved Handler scheme has been replaced by the Certified Handler scheme from 1 December 2017. Certified Handler is now only required if you are using highly toxic (class 6.1A or B) substances. 

Part of the changes relate to the required level of competency, how competency is assessed and the evidence requirements.  As a result, renewal of Certified Handler certificates cannot be completed entirely online.  It requires additional evidence of competency such as copies of your Tracking records, inventory, spray diaries and emergency plan.   However, the first step is to complete the online quiz for Standard certificate and then contact us to let us know you wish to also gain a Certified Handler certificate.  We can then contact the Compliance Certifier and pass on your online results.
