The technical inspection is a visual inspection of the equipment, which upgrades the survey of documents. With the technical inspection we offer support to manufacturer of plant protection equipment and help them with the CE declaration of conformity.
For the assessment of technical characteristics, a visual inspection of the equipment is superior to a survey of documents. You will profit from the Institute´s experience of many years in the technical inspection of plant protection equipment. After visual inspection you will receive an inspection report with all inspected characteristics of the equipment model listed. The survey is based on the valid standards for plant protection equipment, i.e. EN/ISO 16119, as well as the environmental requirements in the EU machinery directive (2006/42/EC). Successfully surveyed equipment will be registered in the descriptive list. Thereby the usability of the equipment following §16 of the German Plant Protection Act is confirmed independently.
