Find out why the NRoSO suspension period has been extended and how it could affect you.

The extension of the NRoSO (National Register of Sprayer Operators) suspension period has been announced.

These changes have been prompted by recent difficulties in obtaining NRoSO continued professional points as a result of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.

Membership reinstatement

During this extended period, points gained will supplement any historical shortfall and lead to membership reinstatement. Members will still be required to obtain 30 points for their current membership term, this being a period of three years starting from their initial joining date.

This extension period will run until 31 December 2022.

If you have had your membership cancelled since 1 January 2022 and feel you should qualify for reinstatement, you can contact City & Guilds via [email protected].

Remaining a member of the NRoSO scheme

NFU senior plant health adviser Dr Spencer Collins says: “The NFU understands that, through no fault of their own, achieving NRoSO points during the Covid pandemic was difficult for some members.

“These temporary changes will give members an extended suspension period where they can gain CPD points to ensure they remain members of the NRoSO scheme”.
