Environ Web - Pesticides / Certificate Application

Note: Legal value of the on-line transaction
Each transaction carried out using the clicSÉQUR ID has the same legal value as when you supply signed written information.

Since December 4, 2006, the Ministère offers an on-line service to obtain certificates for the sale and use of pesticides.
