Poisons Licence

Guidance on poisons licence

Changes to the Poisons Act 1972 following the Deregulation Act 2015

As from the 26th May 2015, retailers who wish to sell Part 2 poisons will no longer be required to be registered with ourselves and instead will be required to hold a licence issued by the Home Office.

The amended legislation requires members of the general public to have a licence issued by the Home Office (which will be enforced by the Police) before they can acquire certain poisons and suppliers would only be able to supply to licence holders.

Apply for a poisons licence or get guidance from the Home Office.
