Under the Agricultural Chemicals Distribution Control Act 1966, if you intend to use ground equipment to distribute herbicides on land that you or a close relative do not own or occupy, you may need a commercial operator's licence.


Factors that can determine if you need a licence include; the type of ground equipment that you are using and whether you are carrying out the ground distribution in a declared hazardous area, a regulated area or non-regulated area of the state.

You must be at least 17 years of age to be issued a commercial operator's licence. You do not need a licence if you are carrying out ground distribution outside of the regulated areas in Queensland.


Commercial operator's licences are issued by Biosecurity Queensland.

A commercial operator's licence is issued for either a 1-year or 3-year period, nominated by the applicant when they apply.
