Approved is better!

SKL (Foundation for Quality Control of Agricultural Equipment) in Wageningen (the Netherlands) is the Dutch organisation for testing agricultural machines in use.

To guarantee the quality of the application equipment, testing of sprayers according to the standard EN-ISO16122 is a key element. SKL is able to certificate organizations, manufacturers and dealers of spraying equipment according to EN-ISO16122. This certification is done according to our quality management system what is certified under ISO9001:2008. This certification has impact of the total system of testing: the testing-equipment, the test-operators, the testing-sites and the registration of performed tests.

This certification will include training courses including refreshing courses for test operators, periodical review of the condition and accuracy of the testing equipment and at random checks of the all-ready inspected sprayers. Registration and provision of labels for approved sprayers can also be supplied.
The requirement that the sprayer is approved, well calibrated and in a well-serviced condition is a vital element in food safety certification schemes like GLOBAL-GAP.
