In Belgium, the inspections of sprayers is performed by official and mobile teams ruled by two regional inspection authorities, ILVO and CRA-W. The management of the inspection is done by the Federal Ministry for Consumer Protection, Public Health and the Environment (FAVV). Inspection authorities need to have an ISO 17020 certification, consequently the Belgian inspection is completely independent and objective. FAVV delegates the inspection to one inspection service per region (one for the Walloon part and one for the Flemish part). In this way inspection results are centralized and easily consultable. The inspection results are a very useful tool to have an overview of the general condition of the Belgian sprayers. Those results can be helpful when advising on changes in legislation. They can also be used as an instrument to advise fruit growers and farmers how to improve their spraying machines, or what points they have to pay attention to when buying a new or second-hand machine. Therefore, a detailed overview is made of the inspection results on orchard sprayers for the 5th inspection cyclus (3 years: 2008-2009-2010).
