You will need this licence if you usually reside in another State or Territory and hold a valid licence as an authorised user of pesticides in that State or Territory, and intend to carry on the business of controlling, destroying or repelling pests as a pest control operator in Victoria. The pesticides you apply for authorisation to use need to be the same or similar in all respects to the pesticides that are authorised for use under your current licence.
There are three types of licence authorisations which may be listed on the licence depending on the type of pest control work to be undertaken and qualifications of the licence holder:
- pesticides (excluding fumigants) formulated for the control of arthropods, rodents, birds and fungi, which are used to control pests (other than pest animals)
- pesticides formulated for the control of pest animals
- pesticides in the form of fumigants.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
