A Controlled Substance Licence (CSL) is required to possess certain vertebrate toxic agents or fumigants. To purchase some of Connovation’s products you must have a CSL.
The CSL shows you have the knowledge, experience and competence to safely handle hazardous substances.

To obtain a CSL you need an Approved Handler Test Certificate issued by a test certifier that covers the substances you need to use. This means you are suitably trained and proficient in the use of these substances. Information on how to obtain a licence and all other relevant information on CSL's can be found on Work Safe New Zealands site.
