You will require this authorisation if you intend to operate an establishment that is used for conducting tests on the growing of specified plant varieties.
Applicants for a plant breeder's certificate are sometimes required to undergo a test growing or further test growing of the variety of plant which their application relates to. Using a centralised testing centre is one method of undertaking these tests.
Centralised testing centres (CTC) will establish, conduct and report each trial on behalf of the applicant.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
